Unchecked and non-maintained diabetes can cost you limbs brother. I was diagnosed 2 years ago. It's a struggle, but it's important. Keep skin wounds very clean, and most of of all, maintain those glucose levels.

It's hard I know. If you're like me, The you actually feel a little better with higher levels (120+). When my levels are in the normal range, I actually feel really weak, and if they get sub-80's, then I start shaking really terribly.

Learn what works and doesn't work for you, and maintain it. It's no joke brother. Take care of yourself. Get better soon. If you ever need to talk about it or want some advice, feel free to PM me anytime.

Every time they clean the wounds, feels like they are using a wire brush

Do you guys use constant monitoring devices or old school pokes? Glargine insulin? Just curious- mostly because my diabetic clients do monitoring and use their glargine for their diabetic kitties.

Get better. Take care of yourself!

You got this brother. You know what you gotta do and you can do it, you can reverse all of this in a year or so of discipline, one day at a time, and be gaming again soon

Unchecked diabetes is no joke. My Dad's half sister (my.....half aunt?), let hers go and ended up in the hospital in diabetic coma a few times before finally dying from it back in 97 or 98. Really serious stuff but it can also be controlled by diet. Couple simple changes and you'll back to normal in no time.

There are monitoring devices with testing strips and lancets for "old school pokes."

Medication depends on which Type Diabetic someone is. Sounds like wooley is type 2 diabetic with his current situation. He may have to get insulin shots (Lantus (Glargine), Humalog, Novolog, whichever). He may also get oral medications like Metformin, Glyburide, etc.

I'm Type 1 diabetic. I take oral medications, Metformin and Glyburide.

There are other medications, but it really depends on how someone responds to which medications.
