Diabetes and bone: complexities, challenges and opportunities

Read these six invited reviews by leading experts. They give a concise overview of the key issues of interest to clinicians and investigators; including a review on efficacy of osteoporosis therapies in diabetic patients, as well as other important topics.

As two of the most common chronic disorders with increasing prevalence worldwide, osteoporosis and diabetes have a complex interrelationship which poses challenges for both researchers and clinicians. Listed below are six excellent invited reviews that will appear in the February special issue of Calcified Tissue International.

The reviews provide detailed insights into key topics of interest to both clinicians and investigators. In his editorial, Professor Serge Ferrari, Professor at the Geneva University Hospital, Switzerland and Chair of the IOF Bone and Diabetes Working Group, stated:

This issue covers in many great details the complexities, challenges and opportunities of bone fragility in diabetes and as such should be both an eye-opener for all of those taking care of these patients, and a trigger to pursue and develop the many experimental and clinical studies that are needed to improve the understanding and management of this increasingly common condition.”
