Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Patients with diabetes mellitus can develop contracture of digits and limbs as a result of soft tissue thickening in these areas. This can lead to wasting of the muscle from disuse. This is referred to as atrophy. You did not mention your father age, and if he is old enough, then he supposes to go for DEXA scan and blood levels of Calcium and Vitamin D and Vitamin B12.

Ask him to go to the physician, and if I were his physician, I would keep monitoring of his blood sugar, prescribe his calcium and vitamin D supplement and injection of Vitamin B12 or mecobalamin tablet and further follow-up accordingly. We have to be always on the safe side, and patient safety is our top priority. Also, your father needs an annual screening for his eyes, foot, and kidneys.
