Caption

Calcified hand arteries. X-ray of the hands of a diabetic with arteritis (inflammation of the arteries). Some of the arteries are calcified, so they show up on the X-ray as faint white lines between the bones. The calcification and inflammation is a result of diabetes, a hormonal disorder that can lead to high blood sugar levels and a consequent deterioration of the blood vessels. Steroid drugs can treat the inflammation, while insulin injections can prevent further diabetes-related damage.
