Publication Type Case Report

Abstract: The chiropractic orthopedist often encounters patients who present with either diagnosed or undiagnosed Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (DM1). This condition may contribute to musculoskeletal conditions. This case study presents a rarely reported case of vertebral compression fractures in a seemingly healthy, physically active, well conditioned male adult, resulting from nocturnal hypoglycemic convulsions. It behooves the chiropractic orthopedist to become familiar with the ‘tight’ control of glucose levels in patients with DM1 in order to recognize possible symptoms and give proper counsel regarding avoiding hypoglycemic events.
