Scholarcy highlights

  • Type 1 diabetes increases the risk of osteoporotic fractures
  • trabecular bone score was recently proposed as an indirect measure of bone microarchitecture
  • The presence of fractures in T1D was associated with lower TBS but not with age or BMI
  • TBS and HbA1c were independently associated with fractures
  • TBS values are lower in T1D patients with prevalent fractures, suggesting an alteration of bone strength in this subgroup of patients
  • Reliable TBS cutoffs for the prediction of fracture risk in T1D need to be determined in larger prospective studies
  • Reliable trabecular bone score cutoffs for the prediction of fracture risk in Type 1 diabetes need to be determined in larger prospective studies
