Default glycosylated knee tendon?

Just ran across Diabetic Tendon Problems. My knee has been bugging me for nearly a year. X-ray and MRI were inconclusive, and physical therapy seems to be of minimal benefit. So maybe this is another delayed onset diabetes complication? Just wondering if other members have had similar issues and hopefully some resolution? Thanks.

I don't know if it's analogous to the shoulder tendon problems that are definitely associated with glycosylation, but good BG control and avoidance of grains has eliminated pain in my shoulders after years of suffering.

Very interesting! I have had a frozen right shoulder last year that took many months of painful PT to resolve and now am having tendon pain in my left. My BS has been controlled between the two events but now wonder if there is a relationship. I had no idea there may be a relationship between diabetes and tendon issues. Thanks for finding that.

See http://www.diabetes-book.com/articles/bernstein.pdf (diseases of the tendons) beginning page 25.

Janknitz,

So how long did it take once you began the grain free BG control? Thanks.

Maybe two weeks after YEARS of pain at that point. I don't even think it took that long

I decided to eliminate grains for a month "on a lark" just to see if it helped me lose weight. I did not think I was sensitive at all and didn't expect this result.

Have you read Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis ? I prefer his new book Wheat Belly Total Health.

Janknitz,
My complications seem to be catching up to me after adjusting my diet, this one included. Except for the very occasional fermented grain beverage (a single 12 or 16oz with a meal has minimal effect on my blood glucose), I've been grain free and LCHF for a year and a half. Wheat Belly was my first read following diagnosis. I'll need to look into the other.

It may be the damage is too far gone for a good diet to cure it at this point. But for pain relief, try loading in some gelatin (buy the powdered stuff from Great Lakes and add it to foods and smoothies) and some turmeric (I mix it with puree pumpkin, butter, a little bit of salt and pepper and nuts and coconut for a warm breakfast on cold mornings, or make turmeric tea).

I had both of them freeze up, fortunately not at the same time.

It was really miserable while it lasted, but it eventually went away.

Did I mention that it hurt a lot?
