Q&A with Dr Kevin Fernando: The risk of fractures for an elderly person with T2DM on Thiazolidinediones (TZD)

Length: 01:24

In this Q&A, Dr Kevin Fernando weighs up the risk of fractures for an elderly person with T2DM on Thiazolidinediones (TZD).

“A 78-year-old female patient with T2DM recently joined our clinic. She has been taking metformin and TZD for over 8 years to manage her condition, but given the patient’s age, I am worried about the increased risk of bone fractures with TZD. Should I re-evaluate her treatment regimen, or should I leave well enough alone?”
