I don,t know if this will help. I went to the doctor with swollen feet and ankles up to my knees. He said it did not look like blood clots were there and gave me a prescription for compression socks for diabetics, after wearing them for a few days all of the swollen stuff went back to normal. hope this helpsView Thread
I really feel bad for your mother and your worry, You don,t say what her bglood sugars are or what type of insulin she is taking. ,m not a doctor but I just went to see my Dr. because my feet were swollen up to my knees. He took one look at my legs and said there were not blood clots and he prescribed me compression socks. They took the swelling down, I am not in pain and these socks certainly took the swelling down.If you have tried a lot of things, take into consideration these compression socks, they may help her. Again, you haven,t said what insulin she,s on or how much she takes, that is important, and diabetes are notorious for having bad balance. Hope she gets better soon. SharonView Thread
Hi, You seem to have your carb insulin ratio down pat.i m a fairly long term diabetic, but still in the guessing game as to how much to injeck. perhaps you or someone else can answer this question for me. Say your are fairly high before a meal,would you still take your carb ratio or allow an extra 1 or 2 units of insulin on top of that to counter attack the high going into a meal? Thanks anyone for giving me some insight into this and what you do. SharonView Thread
I have been a diabetic for 10 years. The lows he is getting measns he is taking too much insulin for what he eats. I would definitely suggests he sarts to lower his insulin intake slowly as to avoid the lows.View Thread
