There's no known cure for osteoarthritis, but treatments can help reduce pain and maintain joint movement.pain killers ,NSAID,helps in reducing joint pain . Doctor would have suggested you to take corticosteroid injection but for patient with elevate blood sugar steroids should not be given . I cannot explain complete treatment in here . you must consult orthopedic doctor with blood sugar reports.
