It is well known from scientific literature that the currently available technologies and tools for bone health assessment underestimate the risk of fracture in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: for a given T-Score, the real risk of fracture is much higher in T2DM patients with respect to controls, despite a normal or increased BMD. This paper demonstrates how REMS technology can help clinicians in overcoming this paradox, providing a lower T-Score in T2DM patients with respect to controls hence allowing a more accurate evaluation of their fracture risk.
