It bothers me how the NHS is blaming Diabetes totally on lifestyle .I don't have it but my twin male cousins had the insulin one . It bothers me how the NHS can allow the situation to get to amputation stage blaming the victims of their negligence .Surely it is sepsis and poor heart monitoring .Are we in the Middle Ages? Where's the monitoring, CARE and research .
A few years ago as a GP Panel member I attended 2 Link meetings in London regarding the handling of chronic condition Diabetes & COPD by giving swimming lessons ? ! There was one Asian man no other patients or support groups .I piped up that they should never do this as far too dangerous unless a Dr was directing Did they listen ? Was I allowed to feedback to the panel or GPs ?
Both the Asian gentleman & I came to the conclusion it was because the hippocratic oath was no longer taken .If the Oath was taken these policies would never have got through .There is too much conflict of interest.
