The objective of this study is to find out the biochemical markers which have independent predictive value of fragility fractures risk with Type 2 diabetes in Guangzhou community and evaluate bone strength better and increase the ability of recognizing fracture risk through following-up visits the bone metabolism index like esRAGE-to-pentosidine ratio of the petients with type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis,compared with the classical fracture risk assessment instrument.
