Heavy bones, low body weight: New link between bone cells and blood sugar level found

Bone cells do not just form new bone, they also influence the blood sugar level. Scientists have now discovered a new mechanism that controls this link. The metabolism of bone cells determines how much sugar they use; if the bone cells consume more sugar than normal, this can lower the glucose level in the blood. This research may contribute to future therapies for conditions such as osteoporosis and diabetes.
