Neuropathy or Nerve damage

Nerve Damage (Neuropathy)



According to the Accuchek web site







"Neuropathy" is a broad word like "animal." It includes a wide range of subcategories that can look as different from one another as a cat and an elephant. Neuropathy, after all, simply means "nerve disease." Because nerves carry all the information about physical sensation and motor instruction between the brain and every part of the body, nerve damage can affect you from your teeth to your toes.



For one person it can mean numbness in the toes, while another person will simply feel "full" sooner than they should. That's why it's smart to have a good idea of the feelings and symptoms associated with nerve damage. Armed with the right information, you can be on guard against neuropathy and take steps to protect yourself.



What exactly is Neuropathy?

Kosher Diet for Diabetics Gets Real Results

Hello Everyone, 

 

My name is Christopher and i have been a diabetic ever since I was 7 years old (I am 31 now).  I got diabetes from contracting the chicken pox and it attacked my pancreas.  Through the next 23 years, I have had huge issues with drastic ups and downs in my blood sugar.  There were many times I would wake up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, there were times someone would have to call the paramedics to get me out of an unresponsive state.  Doctors tried readjusting my insulin, they tried different kinds of insulin and for 23 years nothing seemed to work. 

In October of 2010 I became a Nazarene believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and started keeping Torah, I was a Christian before that and thought I could eat anything that is within my diabetic guidelines to eat, pork, shrimp, shellfish etc.  And I loved pork, I used to wake up in the morning and have a sausage biscuit, I would make spaghetti sauce with tons of pork in it, my favorite food was…

Stop smoking widget

The NHS is the UK have a Stop Smoking Widget aimed at encouraging those of us who smoke to think about the financial and health benefits of smoking.







I was able to stop smoking some years ago after a number of attempts. It was not easy and if I ever think about smoking now I remind myself that as well as the health benefits one cigarette would turn back into 40 a day and a $5000 dollar annual cost of cigarettes.



I learned something else today too. Smoking reduces the ability of the body to transport oxygen. In fact it reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood at our feet.



Patients who live with diabetes have to understand footcare and if they smoke then the risks are increased.



I understand now why our health care professional are very happy when… Continue

Total Pancreatectomy and Islet Cell Transplant.

Hi ,
I would love to hear if anyone else has under gone a total pancreatectomy and or an islet cell transplant ?

I had mine in June 2005 - it took 12 hours of surgery and 3 subsequent operations to date.

Becoming diabetic was a forgone conclusion of the surgery obviously and NO I was not an alcoholic as most people ( including medical professionals ) seem to think. I was born with a rare pancreatatic abnormality, so chronic pancreatitus has been a constant problem from birth.

It would be good to know if any one else has had the same or similar please. Thanks Debbie
