I have type 2 diabetes for 5 years now and when it was firsr diagnosed my blood sugars were in the 40s and I had all the usual symptoms - thirst and frequent urination. However, I was started on oral medication in order to control my symptoms and then put on Humulin M3 insulin soon after.
I do have a loss of sensation in my feet and am currently seeing a podiatrist twice a week for dressing changes and treatments on a diabetic foot ulcer under my right big toe, which is slowly shrinking in size with the use of iodine cream.
My main form of exercise is walking my Border Collie dog called Charlie, who is a very lovable dog who is a great companion.
That is all for now, enough for an intro I hope. Thanks, Ian.
