Washington: According to a recent study, people with diabetes are more likely to experience back back pain and throat pain compared to those with no diabetes.
Researchers from the University of Sydney found that people with diabetes have a higher risk of 35 per cent of low back pain testing and 24 per cent higher risk of throat pain. Their findings were published, based on feta-analyzes of studies that assess the links between diabetes and the consequences of back pain or throat, in the magazine PLOS ONE.
Most adults suffer back pain during their lives and almost half have a pain in the neck at some point. Diabetes is an increasingly common chronic condition. About 382 million people live with type 2 diabetes, the most common type of this metabolic disease.
"It seems that someone is related to diabetes and back pain and throat pain. We can not say how these findings suggest that there is a need for further research to the link," said senior study author , Manuela Ferreira.
However, the reason behind the pain has not been fully established, the researchers said. The team conducted a measurement analysis and included eight studies.
The analysis also showed that Type 2 diabetes and back pain are low related to obesity and lack of physical activity.
"Type 2 diabetes and back pain have a strong relationship with obesity and a lack of physical activity, so this research's logical sequence could look at these factors in more detail. Our analysis adds to the evidence that weight control and activity physical play basic roles in health support, "added Ferreira.
The study also found that diabetes medication could influence pain, possibly through its effect on glucose levels in the blood, and this connection should also be investigated. He also recommended that healthcare professionals consider screening for anonymous diabetes in patients who try to care for neck or back pain low.
"Red and back pain, and diabetes, are causing more and more people. It is worth committing more resources to research their relationship. Changing treatment interventions for diabetes may reduce the number of cases from back pain, and to the opposite, "co-author Paulo Ferreira came to the conclusion.
