Carpal Tunnel: A Diabetes Warning Sign?
Monday, November 27, 2006
Coming down with carpal tunnel syndrome can be an early indicator of type 2 diabetes, a surprising new study finds. Published in the journal Diabetes Care, the study by British researchers finds that wrist nerve problems can predict the onset of diabetes by up to 10 years. Previous studies have linked type 2 diabetes to a host of nerve disorders. In the current study, researchers estimated that being diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome can raise the risk that a person will develop type 2 diabetes by about 36%. The facial paralysis disorder known as Bell's palsy was also identified as an additional diabetes risk factor.
