Diabetes a pain in the neck? This may be why

GPs who suspect patients with diabetes seem to experience more neck and lower back pain than other people have now had their suspicions corroborated by Australian research.

Pooling data from five cross-sectional studies suggests that people with diabetes have a 35% higher risk of experiencing low back pain than those without diabetes, according to the University of Sydney authors.
