where people touched by diabetes help each other.
My mum was complaining of a sore foot, I had a look and she has a hole in her foot! What do I do? Someone please help :(
Call ur doctor
Impossible since it's nearly midnight here lol
Take her to the emergency room immediately! If there's infection it can get severely bad. If you delay it could need to be amputated.
Get her to a doctor ASAP! If doctor is not available quickly, go to the emergency room or she may lose her foot!
Yea bring her to the hospital
Any other suggestions to help til tomorrow?
Living with type 2 diabetes.
If it is really sore now go to ER if you cab get her there. If she is ok till morning keep it covered and call doc in AM.
You can't delay medical attention. It could cost her her foot!
Iv cleaned and covered it with a dressing til the morning
Take her now this is very important. It could mean her foot

For those that take insulin with your meals, how do you go about taking it when you're out at a restaurant or other social gatherings? Do you take it out in front of everyone or do you try to find a secluded spot to take it? How does it make you feel when you take it, knowing people are curious?
In the endos office, and the resident just told me my symptoms are because of my "poorly controlled" diabetes. Lol She then went quiet when endo came in and we discussed my regime, adj & fine tuning
