Many Doctors and Nurses Not Aware That Diabetes Raises Risk for CTS and Frozen Shoulder.

Type 2 diabetics have an increased risk for limited joint mobility (LJM) disorders of the upper extremities, such as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder). Surveys completed by 245 nurse practitioners and 390 general practitioners revealed that more than half were unaware that LJM is a complication associated with diabetes mellitus.
