PURPOSE: Many studies have reported that patients with type 1 diabetes have reduced bone mineral density (BMD). We assessed bone status in prepubertal children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (type 1 DM) at initial diagnosis and investigated factors associated with BMD.
METHODS: Prepubertal children (n=29) with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes from 2006 to 2014 were included. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry measured regional and whole-body composition at initial diagnosis. BMD was compared with healthy controls matched for age, sex, and body mass index (BMI).
RESULTS: The mean age of all subjects (16 boys and 13 girls) was 7.58±1.36 years (range, 4.8–11.3 years). Initial mean glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) level was 12.2%±1.9%. The mean BMD z-scores of lumbar spine, femur neck, and total body were not significantly different between patients and controls. Three patients (10.3%) had low bone density (total body BMD standard deviation score [SDS] < -2.0). To identify determinants of lumbar spine BMD z-score, multivariate regression analysis was performed with stepwise variable selection of age, pubertal status, BMI SDS, insulin like growth factor-1, and HbA1c. Only BMI SDS was significantly correlated with lumbar spine BMD z-score (β=0.395, P=0.023).
CONCLUSIONS: Prepubertal children with newly diagnosed type 1 DM had similar bone mass compared to healthy peers. However, patients with low BMI should be carefully monitored for bone density in type 1 DM.
