I have been eating badly and lots of sugar for the past 2 weeks. Also picked up an extra 10kgs since stopping smoking 8 months ago and I am struggling now to loose it. The problem now is that both my shoulder and finger joints are stiff. Diabetes?

Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Fractured radius — why are my finger joints are very stiff each morning? Improves during the day with movement.how long will this last? Thanks
Swelling from break:
The fracture causes inflammation, which impedes the normal flow of lymph from the hand to the arm and then into the central veins. Because of this slowdown, your fingers are a little swollen and feel stiff.
Elevating your arm, which gives the flow a boost from gravity, might help.
This is temporary, don't worry. ...Read more
