The story on the new study says that they analyzed more than 84,000 type 2 diabetes patients in a study in Canada, comparing effects of the thiazolidinediones with the category, known as sulfonylureas.

Those results reported to show that thiazolidinedione use increased the risk of peripheral fractures by 28 percent.

In contrast Actos was associated with a 77 percent rise in fractures in women, which was considerably lower (17 percent) with Avandia.

"Our findings suggest that both men and women are at increased risk of fracture as a result of exposure to thiazolidinediones and that pioglitazone treatment may be more strongly associated with fractures than rosiglitazone treatment," the study's authors wrote.

Editors Note;
This shows that "the use of some Diabetes drugs  could weaken bones more than acceptable (if patients were told) and that other alternatives that do not weaken bones should be considered.
