Advanced Glycation Endproducts and Bone Material Strength in T2D Treated With Pyridoxamine

The purpose of this study is to determine if a specific form of Vitamin B known as Pyridoxamine helps improve bone strength over one year in women (>65 yrs old) with Type 2 Diabetes. The investigators know that people with type 2 diabetes have the lower bone material strength and the investigators suspect this is due to high levels of circulating sugars that build up over time (known as Advanced Glycation Endproducts). The investigators will study whether using a specific form of vitamin B, known as pyridoxamine helps improve bone strength and reduce levels of circulating sugars over a one year time period.
