Diabetic Stiff Hands Syndrome
Diabetic stiff hands syndrome, also known as diabetic cheiroarthropathy or limited joint mobility, affects some people with type 1 diabetes and is also seen in those with type 2 diabetes. It is, however, more prevalent in patients with diabetic neuropathy than in those without.
Diabetic stiff hands syndrome is characterized by thick, tight, waxy skin. People with limited joint mobility are unable to completely bring all of their fingers completely together when they holds their palms together.
There is currently no specific treatment for this complication except with tight glucose control and therapy to help maintain as much pain-free motion as possible.
