Abstract: Objective: Diabetes mellitus is a most common major public health problem worldwide. The prevalence of DM is increasing worldwide therefore the complication of DM is increasing significantly. The Musculoskeletal manifestation is generally ignored and there is little of literature about musculoskeletal prevalence in our Northern India so my aim is to estimate the prevalence of musculoskeletal manifestation among Type-2 Diabetic patients and it?s correlation to different variables like age, BMI, duration of diabetes, controlled or uncontrolled diabetes, HbA1c and vitamin-D level. Material and Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study from September 2019 to July 2022. On the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria, 200 randomly selected patients of type-2 diabetes mellitus were studied. We estimated the musculoskeletal manifestations among type-2 diabetic patients in a tertiary care hospital of Northern India. Data were analysed by using SPSS software. Results: A total of 200 patients of type-2 diabetes mellitus were assessed clinically for various musculoskeletal manifestations. Among 200 patients, 118 (59%) patients have musculoskeletal manifestations. The age ranges from 20 to 90 years with a mean age of the population is 50.72 +/-12.07. The duration of Diabetes was 1-5 years in 37% patients and 6-10 years in 61.5% patients. Conclusions: On the basis of above observations it is concluded that about 59% patients are suffering from musculoskeletal manifestations among which Osteoarthritis and Limited joint mobility are the most common manifestations. Duration of diabetes, uncontrolled diabetes and raised BMI are the major cause of increase prevalence of these musculoskeletal disorders.
