DIABETES

YES the above graphic is stark, but it is a reality, that all of the type II Diabetics, out there in this big world, may have to face someday. God Forbid. but it will happen. Not to all of you, but to a good portion of you. The time will come when it will become a fact of life to you, as it has to me in the last months. After 5 years, it has come to pass, that I am now insulin dependant, and am now a card carrying member of the Diabetic Registry, from my local hospital. The one good thing about it is, that I get news letters every month, will all sorts of interesting little tidbits. that I can pass on to you my readers, if you should be so inclined to do so, if you, perhaps find my sites the least bit interesting. I shall try to make this one, a little informitive for you as well. As diabetics, we suffer all kinds of small and unusual maladys,and many of these are hard to diagnos, or even explain. to our family Dr.s,, therefore if you have the opportunity, to see or find a specialist in this field, you will get much further, and also get, more and precise information, of what these small occurances are. Just a couple of examples:
DUPUYTREN'S DISEASE( PLAMER FASCITIES)THIS CONDITION, STARTS WITH ONE OR MORE PAINLESS NODULES IN THE PALM, WHICH GRADUALLY MAY THICKEN, AND CONTRACT, CAUSING SOME OF THE FINGERS TO CONTRACT, FLEXOR TENOSYNOVITIS ( TRIGGER FINGER)THIS OCCURS, WHEN A TENDON IN HAND, BECOMES INFLAMED, AND LEADS TO A CATCHING SENSATION, OR SOMETIMES THE; INABILITY TO STRAIGHTEN THE FINGER.THIS OCCURS , ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT, I WAKE TO FIND MY RIGHT INDEX FINGER CURLED, AND IT IS EXTREMELY PAINFULL TO TRY AND STAIGHTEN.AS THESE PAGES PROGESS, I WILL ADD MORE LITTLE DETAILS, AND TIDBITS OF INFO, FOR YOU. THERE IS A LINK ON THIS PAGE, FOR YOU, TO VISIT, IF YOU WISH, WHERE YOU CAN GET MORE INFO. PLEASE VISIT IT, IF YOU FIND THE TIME.
