Ntouva A, Toulis KA, Keerthy D, Adderley NJ, Hanif W, Thayakaran R, et al. Hypoglycaemia is associated with increased risk of fractures in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: A cohort study. Eur J Endocrinol. 2019;180(1):51-8
Type 2 diabetes is associated with an increased risk of fracture. Any factor that incrementally increases this risk should be taken into account when individualising treatment. Hypoglycaemia is a common complication of antidiabetes medications and suggested as a risk factor for fractures; yet, its real-life clinical impact is unclear.
