  • Diabetes Mellitus is a condition where a person
    loses his ability to find the energy in food.
    This is a chronic and life-long.
  • We all know that there are three types of
    diabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and
    gestational diabetes.
  • The human body breaks down the sugars and
    carbohydrates which is eaten into a special sugar
    called glucose. It fuels the cells in the body
    but the cells need a hormone called insulin to
    transform glucose to energy.
  • In the diabetic patients, the body does not
    produce enough insulin, thus the glucose cannot
    be changed into energy. Hence the glucose level
    builds up in the blood, it leads to the damage of
    tissues, vessels and nervous system. 
  • And what most of the patients is not aware of is
    that the diabetes can actually worsen their joint
    pain or even cause one if not present before.

  • Diabetic Arthropathy is a medical term for the
    condition when diabetes damages joint and
    causes joint pain in diabetes.
  • Arthropathy takes long time to get recognized and
    identifies other symptoms like thick skin,
    changes in the feet, painful shoulders, carpal
    tunnel syndrome. There are different forms of
    joint pain from diabetic arthropathy charcots
    joint, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Charcots joint occurs when nerve damage is the
    main cause for a joint break down. This is mainly
    seen in the feet and ankles which further leads
    to muscle pain in diabetes.
  • Osteoarthritis can be observed very commonly and
    can be caused by excess weight because this makes
    bones rub against each other. This also increases
    the difficulty in moving the limbs. The only way
    to treat OA is by reducing the weight.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune
    disease caused by inflammation. The exact causes
    of RA are still unknown but family history is one
    of them.
  • The two main features of RA are pain and swell.
    Unfortunately, there are no treatments for RA but
    can reduce the inflammation with medicines. This
    is how we can come to a conclusion that diabetes
    causes joint pains.
  • Just like there are different forms of diabetes,
    there are also different forms of pains. Diabetes
    knee pain is one among them.

  • Diabetic shoulder which is otherwise known as
    frozen shoulder is a condition in which a
    particular area of the shoulder joint will be
    swollen and thickened.
  • The pain followed by decreased mobility, pain and
    persistent stiffness in the shoulder.
  • It is not being proved that the diabetes is the
    only cause for this condition, but the symptoms
    of the frozen shoulder can say that the person is
    suffering from diabetes.
  • They are much more severe and harder to treat.
