Diabetes and osteoporosis have been highly prevalent. Insulin therapy may increase risk of fracture. According to a cohort study (n=216,624), patients who changed to insulin therapy showed hazard ratio of fractures 1.5, with 1.6/1.8 of hip/vertebral fractures. Elevated hypoglycemic risk may be involved in greater episodes of falls with fractures.
