Does anyone here have or know someone who has chronic inflammation issues and type 1 diabetes? I had a car accident back in August and have been having shoulder issues since. I need surgery to fix my shoulder, but part of the diagnosis is inflammation related. In the past, I have also had 3 left knee arthroscopies for synovitis (inflammation of the lining of the joint / the joint fluid); 1 left wrist arthroscopy to remove inflammed tissue and scar tissue; and sinus surgery because of chronic sinusitis. I know diabetes can put you at risk for inflammatory issues, but this seems ridiculous that at this point, I'm 29 and am coming up on my 6th surgery for something inflammation related. The other thing is that they say poorly-controlled PWDs are at risk for poor wound healing. My body generally goes the opposite of that and heals very quickly and goes over-board causing me to build scar tissue. I have a note in to my PCP and the orthopedic surgeon asking if I should be tested for something because it seems highly unlikely that I wouldn't have something making my body more prone to these issues. MS, celiac, and type 1 diabetes run in the family, so on top of being at risk for auto-immune issues because of my own type 1, I'm at risk for them because of the family history as well. I have always been a "well-controlled" PWD, so I wouldn't think it's something blood sugar related, but possible just something diabetes-related in general? Anyone have any thoughts? I'm getting very frustrated with my body. Thanks.
