supplementation such as the Vitamin D Assessment (ViDA) Study in 5108 older individuals randomized to 2500 µg (100,000 IU) of vitamin D per month or placebo did not report on increased risk of fractures or falls ( 128 , 129 ). In line with this, a recent meta-analysis

Introduction Several studies have demonstrated increased fracture risk in both type 1 and 2 diabetes (T1D and T2D). A meta-analysis by Shah et al. ( n  = 27,300) showed that subjects with T1D displayed a three-fold higher relative risk for

clamp techniques showed that 75% of lean and 95% of obese women had IR compared to weight-matched controls ( 17 ). This was supported by a meta-analysis of clamp studies in PCOS where IR is clearly increased independently of BMI, yet, it is exacerbated
