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.
i had this condition many, many years ago with my THUMB one i could not open the other one i could not close / don't remember which was which lol ;).they are both ok now.
It sounds more like trigger finger to me. How did it get better? surgery? injections?
it lasted 6 months & got better by itself
I have benign Dupuytrens in both hands, meaning I have a swelling at the base of my fingers but no adverse symptoms. I think this condition is yet another complication of Type 1 diabetes. I have had several other diabetes-related hand conditions including trigger finger and carpal tunnel of both wrists. I am also of northern European ancestry;-).
