      diabetic

      sorrry to hear that you lost a toe, I was diagnosed with diabetes in 4/03 type 2. I find it very difficult and expensive staying with the diet, but i'm really afraid of the consequence of not dieting, loss of toes, feet, heartattack, stroke. I've already developed glaucoma, high blood pressure, heart event (stent implant) I'm only 41. So i definitely understand where your coming from. I try to stay strong for the sake of my kids.

            Both my parents have it.
            My dad had a stroke that knocked out his pancreas, making him diabetic a few years ago.

            My mom has had it since she was a child, and is one of the experimental study recepients. When she started in the 40's, they knew next to nothing. It's been hard on her with years of 4 shots a day, and being allergic to insulin. The sink holes in her body from years of shots alone are incredible.

            Doctors once thought she'd not make it to 40, especially with having children (they told her not to try). Three of us survived.

            Mom was the practice for the pump, and is now practicing with a new version that is supposed to come out on the market in a few months that uses a computer to communicate.

            When I was a child it scared me that she volunteered for all the experimental stuff b/c I didn't want to lose her. As an adult I am proud of all her efforts in helping them find a cure. Her view is, "if I die from helping them at least it may save someone else from it."

            They have come a long way toward making life easier for diabetics, and are working on 3 options for a cure. Pray one of them works.

              I guess I feel better. I had lost feeling in that part of my foot for such a long time. When the infection set in my toe just felt like a numb piece of wood. Just wierd I tell you.

                  people take for granted food and the chemical reactions within your body. I miss the days of eat what you want and run or dance off what I don't use.

                    People take a lot for granted, and most have no clue the seriousness of the disease. Some still think it's from not eating right, and you would think with all the information out there people would be more aware.

                    Jones, I am sorry you lost a toe. If you on't mind me asking, Did you lose your toe from an injury that didn't heal, loss of circulation, or was it amputated b/c of infection?

                      ...wow...

                      I looked at a website for symptoms of diabetes and there are so many and most could be mistaken for common things like headache, fatigue, hunger, thirst, dry skin, lack of hunger, fast weight loss/gain... a few of my family members are diabetic.

                            I'll think twice when I want to skip a meal or drink a soda.
