Hello! My husband is a type 1 and had been for a few years. He's slowly making lifestyle changes and his sugars and a1c are improved, but until I read the warning label on NSAIDS I didn't know how harmful they could be. I have rx nsaids for an injury and my husband has an old shoulder and knee injury. He had been taking ibuprofen and such. I'm worried he'll be tempted to use my voltaren gel to help with his joint pain. I'm aware of the potential ulcer issue, but could anyone else tell me how this could harm him? We can't get him to an orthopedic for a couple weeks and he won't listen to me unless I can make a good argument about why he shouldn't use these things. I've tried googling answers and sent a message to his doctor but never heard back about whether or not he should use nsaids (whether otc or rx). Help please. :) Thank you!
