After adjusting for disease duration, age, sex, pubertal stage, insulin dose, height, weight, and physical activity level, significantly lower Z-scores were noted in the HbA1c [greater than or equal to]8% subgroup for TBBMD and TBBMC, as well as for the TBBMC/LBM ratio (Figure 3).
In conclusion, our results showed that adolescent patients with T1DM had lower physiological values of TBBMD, TBBMC, and S24BMD and worse relative bone strength index (TBBMC/LBM ratio), coinciding with higher FM and FM/LBM ratio values compared to age- and sex-adjusted generally healthy counterparts.
