there are several reasons why you can have arthritis. There are some forms of arthritis that are connected with diabetes. Other reasons might be you have rheumatoide arthritis (this will be seen on MRI) or arthritis because of connective tissue disease. It wold be usefull to know what test have been performed before giving other advices.
