Dr. Hilkovitz shares what causes muscle stiffness in diabetics.
The muscle stiffness of diabetes is caused by the advanced glycated end-products which are the combination of unused sugar with protein, which binds with the protein in muscles and causes stiffness of those muscles. Even the heart muscle is effected by that, and the muscles of the skeleton as well as the muscles inside our arteries. Everything gets stiff with these AGEs, as we call them.
