[IP] broken bones and DM

As you all know, Matt broke his arm 3 weeks ago. He has been to see the
orthopedic each week. Again today by looking at the x-rays, the doc doesn't
see any signs of healing, or bone buildup where arm was broke. He is leaving
Matt in his long arm cast for another week. Matt and the doc are hoping to
get Matt into a shorter cast, but it's not happening. I asked if diabetes
could be the cause for slower healing and he said, that the bone just may be
healing on the inside, where x-rays don't see it, but how Matt's arm is
healing isn't typical.  Didn't exactly answer yes or no.  Could this be D
related? Anyone have trouble healing with broken bones?
