Diabetes type 2 joints

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 2 joints


Avatar n tn I would like to please hear from anyone who has or is experiencing joint and muscle aches pre treatment. My joints fingers, knees, ankles, and muscles ache deeply, sometimes it's hard to be comfortable even to sleep. I explained this to the doc and he did some blood test to determine arthritis? That was weeks ago and he's not been very helpful. Any info or remedies would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have had type 1 diabetes for 38 years (I'm 48) with only eye complications (cataracts and minimal hemorrhaging - sight is 20/20 corrected). However, over the past year, I've had pain / stiffness in my left shoulder, wrist, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle..and it's getting worse, impacting everything I do. The pain worsens only AFTER I've done a simple activity including walking down the hall, typing on the computer, or lying flat.
Avatar f tn I also have acquired intensly itchy joints in the fingers, I have several autoimmune conditions, type 1 diabetes, arthritis, neuropathy, raynauds and excema.
Avatar n tn I'm 21 years old in college, and I have had type 1 diabetes for 12 years now, and i have always eaten good, and exercised regularly, but just recently, i wanted to lose some weight, around 10 pounds, but for some reason i am finding it really hard to lose weight. I work out about 3-4 times a week. Usually i do a lot of cardio to burn the calories, so about 2 miles on the treadmill. But i still cant lose any weight. I was just wondering if being diabetic had something to do with that.
Avatar n tn I am not a physician, but the mom of type 1 and the daughter of a type 2. I would suggest that you see your doctor about the problems with your legs. I do not know if you have diabetes or not but neuropathy in the extremities is common complication of diabetes, especially if it is not under control. I hope all goes well.

Avatar f tn Dear Doctor- My father (an extremely active, otherwise healthy man of 71 yrs of age) was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in early June of this year. Subsequently, he unfortunately sustained a left hemisphere subcortical lacunar stroke (infarct) at the end of July. Per his Neurologists' records, "he had no significant stenosis of his carotid arteries and no source of emboli based on his echocardiogram results".
Avatar m tn It just went away and i am talking Sulfasalazine daily. Now two years later i am told out of the blue i am type 2 diabetic. Never in my family history. Also thyroid gland not producing enough. Then i was asked about Atorvastatin and these issues especially typ 2 diabetes. Its all over the internet but my doctors don't seem to know much about the possible connection. What can i be told about this and further how does one investigate and gain knowledge to make a good decision.
Avatar f tn Diabetes type 2 is reversible. You will be given two choices, either continue increasing dosage of medication to control your blood sugar, from a few pills a day to one day injecting yourself with insulin, or you can adopt a way of eating that will naturally keep your blood sugar low and steady and ween yourself off medications completely.
Avatar f tn And can anxiety cause constant joint popping? I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar n tn My problem with this is, of course my constant pain, the fact that my paternal grandfather had diabetes, my paternal grandmother was just diagnosed with diabetes, my father was diagnosed about a year ago with diabetes, with my second child (2002) I had gestational diabetes which did go away after her birth.
Avatar f tn I too have type 2 diabetes, and fibro, and also throw in degenerative osteoarthritis. At one time I was seeing a phusical therapist, for the fibro. I had lots of fatty lumps as you describe them. The PT said they were from myofascial spasm syndrome. He would exert hard pressure to break them up. Stripping up and down my arms, legs, ribcage, exc. Left lots of bruises. Over the years they have come back.
Avatar n tn The glycemic index of the foods that we eat affect all of us, with or without either type of diabetes so I checked around on the internet and found that the website for The American Diabetes Association (they focus on type 2 diabetes for the most part), has quite a few informational articles that you should find helpful if you do a search on "glycemic index". Their website is www.diabetes.org. Best of luck in your continued efforts to control your diabetes! Keep up the good work!
Avatar n tn I smoke basically all the time (even in school) and i have type 1 diabetes. It's affected my motivation for school and my grades have fallen slightly but all in all its not changed my life. Ive been diabetic for 13 years (since i was 3) and i still went out and got absolutely steaming. For a while i was the one who was always sick, always a state and it was great. It didnt affect my diabetes. So then i discovered weed which i liked better, could control easier and had more fun with.
325405 tn?1262293778 I have just discarded them because my sister told me to do so yesterday, so I think it is funny you also said it in your message. Her daughter has diabetes type I, and they raised her girl's blood sugar. In the last couple months she has gone organic and all natural for her daughter. I am now doing the same. I also picked up sprouted grain bread which my sister has a lower GI than regular bread. I also have a friend at church who was a nutritionist many years ago.
Avatar n tn I am now diagnosed with RA, raynaud's phenom and diabetes. I am hoping to find a dr. that has treated someone with my diseases, so far I underwent Remicade tx for the RA and had to be taken off the tx due to severe side effects. I live in Illinois does anybody know of a dr. that can treat my problems. My gp referred me to a rheumatologist in Mo., waited 3 months to see her and a week before the appt. the drs office called and cancelled the appt. now waiting for another appt. in 8 weeks.
Avatar f tn Interestingly father has a collection of sympto,s to include painful joints, lumps, bump, heart failure, diabetes, lymphatic draining problems and suchlike.... I was told there is a cluster of people in Yorkshire and Northeast with DD presumably due to spurious heritage link? Or possible external extraneous local factor as yet undiscovered. I am 38. Relatively normal weight, lumpy, painfully pissed off and utterly incapable of sleep. I had a baby 18 months ago....
Avatar n tn stomach pain (both sides, more recently lower abdomen), loss of appetite, nausea, sore throat with swollen red dots, aching joints, head aches, pain in armpit/groin (lymph nodes?), night sweats, fatigue, eye pain, chapped/dotted lips (small white/yellowish dots), first cold sore ever was at the beginning of this.

317787 tn?1473362051 It has been slowly coming on for many months, after a fall, or maybe because I have diabetes, am post menopausal and have low thyroid. I am going to PT for the left arm, it is very painful and I am doing at home exercises twice a day. It seems to be helping a bit. Now...my right arm is beginning to get the same twinges that started in the left arm 5 months ago. I am so confused as to why both arms would do this. Should I go back to the Orthopedic? get another cortizone shot?
Avatar n tn Are we gonna make it like Rocky? Tingling 2 the Revenge? My suggestion on how to sleep....is already known! Ok, I don't want to transform all of you in a bunch of drug addicted, but have you tried a tranquillizer just once? Just to see whether your tingling diminishes the moment you calm down? @rnneeedshelp: as my "colleague" has written, you are anxious over the symptoms, not the opposite, and the same is for all of us.
4705307 tn?1447973922 I am asking because I remember Pooh suggesting that others try going for testing as this type of doctor can do more testing than a GP. Not to say your GP can't do it.. I have not really looked into this much but I will, in the mean time I wanted to try to give you a place to look. I will get the link, and come back.

I goofed in my question I took the test 11 days after transfer (TODAY!) I see the Dr. THIS Monday the 14th for actual test. I wish you lot's of luck as well... try not to get stressed...
Avatar n tn I have aching joints, muscle tenderness, breast tenderness, bloating, mood swings, depression, no motivation, and my legs hurt after walking only a short distance. I found out I have Type II diabetes and am on Metformin (500mg). I have also found small knots in my legs.
Avatar f tn Your mother is a type 2 diabetic, it sounds like, because of the type of medication you mention that she's on. Type 2 is different from type 1, in that with type 1 it takes insulin to control the diabetes, and with type 2 it's primarily controlled by diet and exercise. Sometimes type 2's need pills to help their body remember how to use the insulin that it is creating, and that is where your mother is.

Avatar n tn About 3 months ago i hurt my left foot doing some work around the house. shortly after i started experiencing some wierd buzzing type of sensations under the foot. Really frustrating to the point i started favoring the foot. I was even shaving standing on one foot. 2 weeks ago my right foot started experiencing sensation (different type of sensation) and about a week ago my knees started stiffening up. It's like a tight, slightly stiff feeling.
Avatar n tn December I woke up to the darkest day of my life. I thought it was the worst depression could be. Diabetes Type 2..blood sugars began dropping dramatically and then along with this blood pressure and heart rate. So much chest pain. My entire body feels hot! My joints are locking up! Muscle weakness! I've lost 50 lbs this past year..no reason except being sick. Some say it's depression and that I'm getting some dementia..I'm only 57.
