about two years ago i came down with Diabetes. I started off by having to take insulin and after not being able to afford it I tried managing with food and so far so good my levels that were so high are now in the low numbers from 98 to 106 sometimes a little higher but now even as I type my hands sometimes fall a sleep for any aparent reason and I have had trouble with my feet. Now the pain has become unbarable in my left foot were it feels like it is broken and it is effecting my toes to the point of numbness and my right foot keeps developing a sore between my toes and can't get rid of it. I guess I am at the point of returning to my doc to see what we can do about.View Thread
thanks for responding. since I posted i recently went to the hospital in such agonizing pain and while i was there waiting for the lab work the doc came in and said that the sore between my toe is a diabetic ulcer. when the labs came back it was disappointing news when the doc said that my counts were high and low as far as white count and stuff then when i got home i was asked to call the doc about my labs and it was said that my red count is low and iron levels are low and from the testing that she had in front of her it looked like from the evidence she had that it is possible that my liver and other organs might be shutting down so today i am going to get some other opinionsView Thread
