Introduction: Adults with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) are at risk of premature osteoporosis and fractures. The onset of T1DM typically starts during childhood and adolescence thus the effects of diabetes on the skeleton may be established in this period. Studies in children primarily use DXA to evaluate the effects of T1DM on bone with conflicting results. We present the first study in children assessing the impact of T1DM on skeletal microstructure and strength, using HRp...
