The tools to assess the diabetic fracture risk in daily medical practice: a mini review

Mara Carsote

Abstract :

 The diabetes mellitus is a widely recognised disease. Its frequency is higher and higher for the last decades especially for the type 2 diabetes. The associated fragility or osteoporotic fracture risk is a relatively new concept for type 2 diabetes and the tools we have for current medical practice are still perfectible. The Dual–Energy X–Ray Absortiometry points a low, respective a high bone mineral density in type 1, respective in type 2 diabetes. The 10–year probability fracture risk algorithm FRAX does not use type 2 diabetes as an input. One of the most promising tools is Trabecular Bone Score as a provider of data for qualitative microarhitecture damage in type 2 diabetes. The diabetic bone turn over biomarkers are generally suppressed. The future will ing together all the data we need to adequately use in front of a diabetic patient to have a good perspective of the fracture risk
