TYPE 1 DIABETES BONE HEALTH STUDY

The purpose of this clinical research study is to determine the factors that increase risk of fracture (broken bones) for individuals with Type 1 Diabetes. Diabetics have a higher risk of fractures and there is a need to identify the underlying mechanisms for this increased fracture risk.

The potential benefits to participants would be knowledge gained about their bone density and the results of laboratory tests.  On a wider scale, there may be general benefits to society because the knowledge gained from this study may help better understand the effects of diabetes on bone health.

  • A woman aged 50 or older
