STUDY LINKS DIABETES, ARTHRITIS & SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE

Having diabetes doubles an individual’s odds of suffering from arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This association reflects the sedentary lifestyle typical among people with both disorders.

Specifically, nearly 30% of diabetics with arthritis are physically inactive, compared with 21% of diabetics without arthritis, 17.3% of arthritis sufferers without diabetes and 10.9% of adults with neither condition.
