Back in November of 2017 I was rear ended on the freeway and the truck I was driving was totaled due to how severe the impact was. Since then I have been seeking medical treatment for back and neck injuries sustained when the seat broke and jumped the rails. At this point I am wondering if there are any medical publications that address the topic of muscular-skeletal injuries and healing time for people with diabetes.

As a person with a lot of metal parts, I have found there is a lot of information out there on Diabetes and musculoskeletal injuries, however it's all very vague.
Diabetes "may" play a role in healing by negatively affecting the blood's ability to circulate normal protein and lipids necessary for repair depending on your glucose levels. I guess the sciency term is having glycated cells.

That being the case, it's more common for wounds and lesions than musculoskeletal injuries, and there are so many other factors involved depending on just what was injured. "Musculoskeletal" involves a lot of moving parts, so it would be hard to find any real-time, definitive answer to your question.
