Curious if any other long term diabetics are having body pains? Turns out diabetic and tendons do not get along over time. What's your experience been with this. I can't be the only one.
I have developed nerve damage and will be getting carpal tunnel surgery for both arms. The tendon and nerves both go through there.
39 years T1D
I've had trigger finger develop in my right thumb from diabetes & had to have surgery. It is now starting in my right ring finger so will eventually have surgery for it.

Sorry to hear that Bruce. I have carpel tunnel syndrome as well, but it is from the tendons thickening. Had an emg and luckily no nerve damage. Best of luck with surgery!
**** I've heard of trigger finger syndrome. I guess it's similar to my issue with the connective tissue. Been told the extra sugar in the blood causes problems with collagen in soft tissue.

I have developed frozen shoulder. Sucks, but trying to maintain as much flexibility as possible. T1x 34 years.
**** frozen shoulder is painful. Sorry to hear you have to deal with that too. Flexibility is hard for me cause it appears there is a nerve impingement in the shoulder when I lift it. Good luck!

Hey guys! How often do you go to the pharmacy or receive a mail order with supplies? Thank you!
Let me know it's you and if you can help me out thank you all so much!!!!!!!
Last Sunday, in the brutal heat, we were at my son's baseball game. I overheard another mother of a T1D mention heat effects her son more than a non-T1D kid. Anyone with this experience?
Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
21y/o type 1 for 11 years if you have questions ask me, cause i've been through it ALL! a lot of people answering are giving the wrong info or grouping type 1 and type 2 together.
DESPERATE for pump supplies! either silhouette or quick set infusion sets. no insurance and I've been trying to sell anything of value on Craigslist to come up with the money for them, but no luck!
Does anyone know how much the bionic pancreas cost or. how you go about getting on the list ??
My son Brad was asked to speak last night at a JDRF walkathon fund raising evening about his experience with AFREZZA the new Inhaled Insulin. People were VERY excited. Over 100 attendees. He is 26&T1
