Like "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."
