Diabetes and bone
Diabetes mellitus is a widespread metabolic disease, which disrupts the entire organism of patients. This also significantly affects bone health. The consequences are an increased risk of fractures and a worse healing of bone fractures. In order to investigate the connections between this metabolic disease and the bone system, the EU project „FIDELIO“ is running from 2019 to 2024. The European consortium, which is coordinated by scientists from the Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus of the TU Dresden, is funded by the EU with a total of 3.8 million euros. In this framework, 14 ambitious, creative young scientists are trained to tackle the future challenges of an aging society.
Be introducted to the senior researchers and supervisors in FIDELIO, who are featured in the Research Lives and Cultures podcast series created by Sandrine Soubes.

Diabetes can lead to higher porosity and glucose-related collagenous changes in bone
Our partners at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) recently published a study where they analyzed cortical bone material quality in individuals with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). They employed several techniques analyzing the bone matrix at different length scales. In this way, a subgroup of individuals with high
