The newest study is suggesting that the breakdown of bone from old to new bone could be directly connected to Type 2 diabetes. The breakdown releases a hormone called osteocalcin and operates properly in the body to regulate glucose levels when it occurs during normal breakdown. The findings out of Columbia University will help to change the medical treatment of osteoporosis, but also update the treatment of Type 2 diabetes.
The treatment given to osteoporosis patients right now and the medicines that are used to treat it may interfere in the proper processing of glucose. Type 2 diabetes may have a new treatment or be prevented with this fresh research that is still being tested further on mice. Read here for the details of the study.
