The incidence and prevalence of diabetes is increasing in developing countries, many complications have been reported, and hand getting affected is one of them. There is decremental effect of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) on skeletal muscles. The aim of the present study was to assess the hand grip strength and compare it with age and sex matched apparently healthy non-diabetic subjects. Methods: This was a comparative cross sectional study carried out in the Outpatient Department of Civil…

Comparative Study to Determine the Hand Grip Strength in Type-II Diabetes Versus Non-Diabetic Individuals - A Cross Sectional Study

There is significant reduction in grip strength in diabetic group which was increased as the duration of diabeties was increased and incorporating grip strength evaluation and treatment at the earlier stages may help in preventing complication and reduce the impact on functional disability in diabetic population.

Diabetes is associated with lower skeletal muscle strength and quality and these characteristics may contribute to the development of physical disability in older adults with diabetes.
