Abstract

Background: Musculoskeletal disorders are very common among the diabetic patients and frozen shoulder is one of the disabling conditions. The present study was conducted to compare the serum triglyceride level among the patients of type 2 diabetic presented with and without frozen shoulder.

Methodology: This case control study was conducted from January 2008 to December 2009, in the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Dhaka with an aim to compare the serum triglyceride level among diabetic patients presented with, and without frozen shoulder. Thirty types 2 diabetic patients with frozen shoulder were selected as cases and similar number well matched type 2 diabetic patients without frozen shoulder were selected as control.

Results: We prospectively studied 30 diabetes mellitus (type 2) patients with the diagnosis of frozen shoulder. The blood sugar both fasting and 2 hours after breakfast, HbA1c and serum triglyceride levels were measured in all patients and compared with those in 30 diabetic patients without frozen shoulder. The blood sugar, fasting and 2 hours after breakfast, HbA1C and serum triglyceride levels were significantly elevated in the frozen-shoulder group (fasting blood sugar p = 0.012; blood sugar 2 hours after breakfast p<0.01; HbA1C p<0.05; and triglyceride p < 0.001).

Conclusion: Diabetic type 2 patients presented with frozen shoulder had higher serum triglyceride level compare to the diabetic type 2 patients without frozen shoulder.
