‘Frozen Shoulder’ Much More Prevalent Among Diabetics | Diabetes News Hound | January 21, 2010

I can second this: I’ve had a frozen shoulder, and carpal tunnel syndrome AND trigger finger! Diabetes is more of a pain than people understand, in many many ways.

“Studies have shown that people with diabetes – either Type 1 or Type 2 – have a significantly higher risk of getting the “Frozen Shoulder,” which is also known as adhesive capsulitis, according to a recent New York Times article. Only 2%-5% of the general population develops this condition, but at least one in five diabetics will experience it and are much more likely to have severe cases. Older diabetics are most likely to develop the condition.”
