Age related disorders like OA and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are becoming more universal due to increasing length of human life span.There is a relationship between OA and T2DM whether hyperglycemia could be a signicant risk factor for development of OA. For the development of OA, the typical riskfactors include mechanical stress, aging, genetics, metabolic syndrome that creates degeneration of joints. Hormonal regulation and glucose metabolism play a signicant role for a healthy cartilage. However, patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) frequently suffer severe symptomatic joint problem. Indeed hyperglycemia and insulinemia may cause destruction of joint cartilage and speed up the development of OA. United States reports,47.3 percent patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) bear some form of musculoskeletal joint disorders.
