    CHECK YOUR FEET DAILY!!!!!!!!

    I have a friend who just lost his big toe due to an infection from a unnoticed injury a week ago. He may lose more toes or his entire foot, if the meds do not work.

    If you fall into these categories:


    * Age over 45 years
    * A parent, brother, or sister with diabetes
    * Heart disease
    * High blood cholesterol level
    * Obesity
    * Not getting enough exercise
    * Previous impaired glucose tolerance
    * Some ethnic groups (particularly African Americans, Native Americans, Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Hispanic Americans)

    OR

    If you have any of these symptoms, get yourself tested for diabetes NOW!

    * Blurred vision
    * Fatigue
    * Increased appetite
    * Increased thirst
    * Increased urination

    The Good News: The meds seem to be beating back the infection.
    The Bad News: He lost the 2nd toe. icon_neutral.gif
