Annualized percent change Epidemiology and Biostatistics,University of California San Francisco, in BMD was compared by DM status, using random effects models. Of 6,867 women 185 Berry Street, Suite 5700, 5th with at least one follow-up DXA scan, 409 had DM at baseline. Mean age was 70.8 (SD Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA 4.7) years. Baseline BMD was higher in women with DM at all measured sites. In models adjusted for age and clinic, women with prevalent DM lost bone more rapidly than thosewithout DM at the femoral neck (−0.96 vs. −0.59%/year, p < 0.001), total hip (−0.98 vs.
−0.70%/year, p < 0.001), calcaneus (−1.64 vs. −1.40%/year, p = 0.005), and spine (−0.33vs. +0.33%/year, p = 0.033), but not at the distal radius (−0.97 vs. −0.90%/year, p = 0.91).
These findings suggest that despite higher baseline BMD, older women with DM experi- ence more rapid bone loss than those without DM at the hip, spine, and calcaneus, butnot the radius. Higher rates of bone loss may partially explain higher fracture rates in olderwomen with DM.

Diabetes and change in BMD and fracture. To achieve these goals, we studied the associationsbetween diabetes and rate of bone loss at several skeletal sitesin older women enrolled in the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures(SOF), using longitudinal data from 1986 to 1998.
The Study of Osteoporotic Fractures (SOF) is a prospective cohort
of 9,704 white women aged ≥65 years. Participants were recruited
from the community in four U.S. regions: Portland, Oregon;
Minneapolis, Minnesota; Baltimore County, Maryland; and the
Mononghela Valley near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Enrollment
began in 1986, and the current analyses are based on follow-
up data through 1998 Women were
recruited irrespective of BMD and fracture history; those unable to
walk without assistance and those with bilateral hip replacements
were excluded. All women provided written consent, and SOF was
approved by the Institutional Review Board at each site.
At baseline, participants were asked if a physician had ever told
them that they had diabetes or "sugar diabetes." Women who
answered "yes" to this question were identified as having preva-
lent DM. Twenty-five women did not answer this question and
were excluded. Using the same survey question, incident DM was
defined at years 3.5, 6, 8, and 10 (corresponding to SOF clinic visits
3, 4, 5, and 6) and via medication inventory at years 6, 8, and 10.
Women who did not report diabetes but who were taking diabetic

Calcaneal BMD
Peripheral BMD was measured at the calcaneus using single
x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) with Hologic QDR-1000 scanners photon absorptiometry (Osteoanalyzer; Dove Medical Systems) (Hologic, Inc., Bedford, MA, USA). Hip BMD was measured again at the baseline, year 6 and year 8 visits at years 6 and 8 on the same scanners. At year 10, hip BMD was in all women and at the year 10 visit in a subset of participants measured with QDR-1000 scanners for 4,224 women and with Of the 9,679 women with baseline DM data, 6,700 QDR-2000 scanners for 346 women.

between more rapid bone loss and fracture remain controversial.
Despite higher baseline BMD, accelerated bone loss may account, More rapid bone loss may simply be a marker for a lower BMD at least in part, for the increased fracture rate observed with closer to the time of the fracture. In support of this hypothesis, in the Tromso study the rate of bone loss was no longer associatedwith fracture risk when models were adjusted for the final BMD measurement, closer to the time of fracture The Study of Osteoporotic Fractures (SOF) is supported by In contrast, in the Study of Osteoporosis in Men (MrOS) cohort National Institutes of Health funding.

Warfarin-Drug Interactions Among Older Adults Andrew Liu, BSc Hon, BScPhm, RPh; Carmine Stumpo, BScPhm, PharmD, RPh Geriatrics Aging. 2007;10(10):643-646. ©2007 1453987 Ontario, Ltd. Posted 12/28/2007 Abstract and Introduction Abstract Warfarin-drug interactions are often encountered in the care of older adults. Interactions may be classified as pharmacokinetic, resulting in changes in serum warfarin concentrations, or pharmacodynamic, resulting in changes in hemostasis or platelet function. Knowledge of these mechanisms of warfarin-drug interactions may help identify warfarin interactions, facilitate prescribing decisions, and assist with appropriate monitoring.
