Has anyone had issues with their tendons? I've had diabetic for 38 years and have horrible pains and frozen shoulder. If so, what has helped?

I have that problem with a very high blood sugar and I lower my bg and it always helps!

Thanks**** The frustrating part is that my bg is under good control and the Dr just says give it time.

When I have aches & pains I use, bio freeze. A lot of chiropractors use it.

It's problem the frozen for Diabetics especially if continues for a long time. The physiotherapy may be help or if you diabetes in good control - injection of steroids in shoulder joint

I have had diabetes T1 for more than 20 years and also seem to have tight, achy tendons and muscles. I haven't really found anything to solve it just pain mess to help it. staying hydrated also helps, drink a lot of water.

I remember a thread on about frozen shoulder that you may want to check out. I've not personally experienced it but remembered reading that it was something I want to avoid.
