Brief Answer: Hip joint pain does not indicate diabetes 1. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Hip joint pain with butt pain does not indicate diabetes 1. Pain along hip joint indicates possibility of hip arthritis. Hip arthritis can be degenerative or due to avascular necrosis of femoral head [AVN]. I will advise you do X ray of hip and you can consult me with reports or with your doctor. Butt pain can be due to spinal nerve compression.MRI spine will help to diagnose the condition. Till time take analgesic and cartilage protecting medication like glucosamine sulphate. For hip arthritis joint flexion, extension and rotation exercises will help. Physiotherapist will help you better to learn more exercises in proper protocol. Diet rich in calcium and protein will help In diabetes there is osteoporosis of bones so hip arthritis can occur early. Hope this answers your query.
