In this study, we have evaluated the prevalence of periarthritis in diabetes above the age group of 50 years in a population residing in Venjaramoodu, Trivandrum. There were a few exclusion criteria. This is a cross-sectional study which includes 100 participants selected from the patients of periarthritis. Data were analyzed using the percentage analysis method. This study showed that 36% of patients of periarthritis attending the orthopedic outpatient department had diabetes mellitus. We come to the conclusion that the prevalence of periarthritis is more in diabetic individuals and that periarthritis is more common in uncontrolled diabetes.
