Few data are available on osteocalcin in pediatric patients with T1DM. The aim of our monocenter observational study was to evaluate the role of the main remodelling bone biomarkers in the regulation of glucose metabolism at the time of type 1 diabetes diagnosis and to evaluate their potential relationship with insulin sensitivi...
