Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel manifests with weakness, numbness and tingling as well as pain in the thumb, index and middle fingers, which typically worsens at night. This condition develops because glucose not used properly by the body, making connective tissues thicken or contract.
Dupuytren’s contracture is another condition more likely to affect diabetics. The affected tissues are under the skin of the palm. In this case a hand deformity develops over years as knots of tissue build up under the skin, causing a thick cord that pulls the fingers in a bent position.
