Background: To determine the importance of type 2 Diabetes mellitus as a risk factor for osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, this study was designed in endocrine clinic of zanjan in 2003.
Methods: As a case-control study, 40 diabetic and 40 healthy menopause women have been recruited. These two groups were matched in terms of their age, length of their menopausal period and body mass index. Serum Calcium, Phosphorus, Alkaline phosphatase and Estradiol were measured in all the cases and bone densities in three sites (Femoral neck, lumbar spine and forearm) were evaluated with DXA. All data were analyzed using T-test, analysis of variance, chi-square and multiple regression tests.
Results: The frequency of osteoporosis and osteopenia in diabetic women were not significantly different from non diabetics. The mean bone density in femoral neck was higher in diabetic group (P= 0.013). In both groups there was a significant relationship between bone density and length of menopause (P<0.01) .The relationship between BMI and Bone density was significant only in femoral neck (P<0.01) in both groups. In diabetic women, the higher HbA1c accompanied with the lower bone density in lumbar spine.
Conclusion: Although the level of HbA1c as a marker of blood glucose control, has a relationship with lumbar spine density in diabetics, Diabetes type 2 is not a risk factor for osteoporosis, So screening, diagnosis and management of osteoporosis in diabetes type 2, Should be done independently and according to other risk factors.
