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.

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

What can I do about pre-diabetes?

Blood Glucose testing meters - concerns over accuracy


This article from the New York Times today raises concerns over accuracy of blood glucose monitors used by patients. (This means most of our members!)

Standards Might Rise on Monitors for Diabetics


Federal officials may soon require improvements for the glucose monitors used by more than 11 million diabetics in the United States.

The rise in the use of home glucose monitors, even by hospitals, is pushing the action by the Food and Drug Administration, which for decades has followed international standards that allow the devices to be wrong by as much as 20 percent. Such a wide error rate can leave patients vulnerable to severe problems, including seizures, unconsciousness and coma.

In June, the agency pressed the international group… Continue
