Carpal Tunnel and Diabetes

People with diabetes may be more likely to develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as a result of increased fluid retention in the diabetic’s body. Although there is no conclusive evidence to prove that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes diabetes (or vice versa), “Researchers found that people who had been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome were 36% more likely to later be diagnosed with diabetes, regardless of other diabetes risk factors.”
