I just recently had rotator cuff surgery for the 3rd time, and have had 5 surgeries in the past 11 years, all involving muscle tearing off the bone. Is there a connection between diabetes and it weakening the muscle-tendon connection to the bone. I am type 1 diabetes, take 45 units of Lantus at bedtime, 500 mg of Metformin 4 x a day, and 1 mg of Glimepiride 2 x a day. While in recovery at the hospital, one of the nurses said there may be a connection.
