Doctor :   Hi and thanks for the query, I am very pleased to be assisting you with your health questions today. Probably your fa ther has carpel tunnel syndrome, which is a complication of long standing diabetes. This condition is well managed by night splint, or injection at wrist or if required, by a minor surgery at wrist. I advice you that you should see a physician/rheumatologist as soon as possible Hope this helps and provides answers to your question. If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to ask me again I wish you good health, take care
