It is unknown whether there is any relationship between extremity arterial macroangiopathy and osteoporosis in type 2 diabetic mellitus (T2DM) patients. We provide evidence to show the association between lower extremity arterial calcification and the presence of osteoporosis in postmenopausal T2DM women, but not in T2DM men of similar age.
