NIAMS, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), maintains a number of pages relating to disorders of the joints that are more common in people with diabetes. The page on shoulder problems (www.niams.nih.gov/Health_Info/Shoulder_Problems/default.asp) includes information on frozen shoulder, as well as on arthritis’s effects on that joint. Another page, on arthritis and rheumatic diseases, or diseases that cause inflammation (http://www.niams.nih.gov/Health_Info/Arthritis/arthritis_rheumatic_qa.asp), includes an extensive overview of these conditions, as well as detailed information on testing, diagnosis, and medical treatment. A menu on the right of both pages offers links to other relevant pages; paper copies of any page can be ordered online at http://catalog.niams.nih.gov.
