There has been much recent excitement about the extra-pancreatic actions of incretin hormones. Recent studies suggest the incretin pathway may be implicated in bone remodeling and a recent article by Torekov and colleagues has provided genetic data in support of a link between a functional variant in glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), bone mineral density, and the risk of fractures.
