That's a pic of my hand.
There is somewhat of a controversy over weather Dupuytrens contracture is a complication to diabetes or a condition that goes along with it or, if it is unrelated.

There is some evidence that there is some correlation to Type 1 at least.

There are other much stronger correlations though, like norther European ancestry esp Irish and Scottish. Anywhere conquered by the Vikings.

I know that Diabetics usually have a much more mild version though.

I ma looking for others with this condition and if you have any input or insight .

I would also like to hear your theories and stories. Post Pics if you like.
