Inflammation of joints and Type 2 Diabetes
adaptomom posted:
I had a very stubborn case of tennis elbow this past spring, and now I'm having a lot of pain in my left hip. My chiropractor did an ultrasound and x-ray which show severe inflammation of the whole area, but healthy amounts of cartilage, which is good. He brought up the fact that I've had two severe instances of inflammation recently and thought that maybe it's due to my diabetes. Although my diabetes is well-controlled, my blood pressure and cholesterol are both on the low side, he said diabetes could still be causing this, and that the inflammation also might be happening in my circulatory system. I have a call into my MD for an appointment to discuss this, but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar as a complication?
