Arthritis and Diabetes Links

Diabetes can have the same effect on joints as arthritis. This is because diabetes, if poorly controlled, or detected late, affects nerves, and restricts blood supply to the extremities.

Medicines for arthritis affect those for diabetes. Hence, a primary care physician should be in charge of both medical conditions, when they co-exist, or a specialist in one field has to know about all other medications taken by a patient, before preparing a prescription.

Type 1 diabetes and arthritis are both disorders of the immune system, though people with one fortunately need not have the other-however, auto-immune disorders of the thyroid do seem to be correlated with type 1 diabetes within families.
