From Plainfield, Indiana, USA:

My 24 year old son, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of ten, has recently experienced several cases of muscle strains. Can these muscle strains be attributed to his diabetes in any way?


Muscle strains are usually associated with extreme use of the muscle group. The muscle can be overstretched or torn as a result. This is not directly related to his diabetes.
