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

Hi guys, I'm in desperate need of...
Has any Type 1 diabetic used Afrezza? Is it better? Major difference?
Anyone have suggestions for where to place a Dexcom cgm sensor? I would normally use my abdomen, but because of pump sites, it's pretty beat up there. Has anyone tried the back of the arm? The idea freaks me out but I may try it.
in desperate need of lantus pens or vials. I can trade hundreds of syringes. only have two days left no way to get samples or discounts
I have been been getting really low blood sugar (around the 50s) ever since I came back to college a week and a half ago. I'm usually in class when it starts to happen or really far away from my dorm. Also I eat a healthy well balanced breakfast and lunch. The only thing is that I have to walk a lot since it is a really big campus. It is really scaring me. Does anyone have any opinions on what can help me?
This one's kinda for the ladies, but I don't know maybe guy diabetics have this problem too? Do y'all experience frequent bladder and yeast infections? If so have you found anything that helps? Thanks

Just a quick question to the type 1 diabetics. How long after a hypo does it take a person to get back to normal. My boyfriend had one 2 weeks ago and I think I'm pushing him a little.

DESPERATE for pump supplies! either silhouette or quick set infusion sets. no insurance and I've been trying to sell anything of value on Craigslist to come up with the money for them, but no luck!
