where people touched by diabetes help each other.
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.
T1D - 42 yrs
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, does anyone have study tips for the unfortunate diabetic? I'm a 1st year med student. I'm always high because I cannot concentrate after lows and I don't want to lose time on that...
Just a quick question to the type 1 diabetics. How long after a hypo does it take a person to get back to normal. My boyfriend had one 2 weeks ago and I think I'm pushing him a little.
Does anyone know how much the bionic pancreas cost or. how you go about getting on the list ??
Since Dr. Oz covered diabetes today this is again under my skin. Type 1 & Type 2 are not the same! Are there any other type 1 diabetics annoyed with how diabetes is classified or am I being to particular?
I was just diagnosed with type one. I've read a lot on here about pumps. should I be looking into getting one?
Hi guys, I'm in desperate need of... dex g4 sensors i only need two or three. ill pay shipping if anyone can help me out that would be wonderful

just curious what other people keep in their cars for possible reactions. I tried glucose tabs but they go bad in summer heat. Now I use fruit wraps.
