    Do you mean drug trials? Or drug testing? I haven’t really done either of them, but over the years I’ve been suggested treatments like them. I’m paranoid about it making me worse, so that’s a bit reason why I never tried drug testing/trials. And I doubt I ever will.

    I pretty much take it all currently from; Vitamin D,magnesium, probiotics, berberine, and melatonin.

    And I may be missing some other supplements.

    Well idk if it effects your limbs, but if you’re unhealthy and you live a sedentary lifestyle, your body is gradually going to get worse and worse. And it’s much worse for diabetics.

    I’ve eaten vegan Doritos. I wouldn’t eat a lot of them, but they’re much more healthier than traditional Doritos. Also, they make tuna chips. Never even knew about it until recently.

    I agree to some extent. As long as the pets are safe and healthy I don’t mind. But if they’re not respecting their pets, that’s when I have a problem.

    I feed my pets great, even though I don’t take 100% the best care of myself. But, everyone is different.

    Even if you don’t have insurance, I would advise you to head to the ER or to an open clinic if possible. Just have them bill you. I know it’s not ideal, but money is money and your life is much more important.

    They need to take a blood test to check. I personally would head to the ER if it’s causing a lot of problems for you.

    I was part of one at my high school. It was just us kids who had diabetes and we’d come together after school to talk about our issues and provide each other with support.

    I haven’t really ever used any online support groups, unless you count this site/forum. 🙂

    Mmmm, now I’m craving pizza, thanks guys! I haven’t had pizza in years, not even healthy alternatives. I think it’s about time I make a change and give some of these recipes a shot. 🙂

    My Christmas was good. Nothing spectacular, but I was with family, friends and we had a wonderful time. Wish it could have lasted longer, but I understand with the pandemic, that’s easier said than done.

    in reply to: Has treatment for diabetes the best its ever been? #227

    I think it’s the best its been, because we have the best up to date medication. I think things could be better. As well, I would love to see a cure created, but I’m not betting on that anytime soon. 🙁

    Yeah, I can see that being likely. If you don’t take care of your pets the best, it’s possible the owner of those pets could be in poor health as well. Unless they just don’t care about their pets or something.

    in reply to: Should diabetics be on disability? #225

    I think it depends on the type of diabetes you have and if you’re unable to work. If you’re capable of work, you probably won’t be able to get on disability.

    Just once, and it was because of an infection. The infection stuck around for a little too long, but it eventually went away. Diabetes makes everything worse imo.

    I’ve taken CBG gummies in the past, and they really only help me with anxiety and depression. It doesn’t change anything about my diabetes or anything else from what I can see. Still though, if it works for you, I say go for it.

    in reply to: Does diabetes cause boils? #199

    I believe it can cause boils to increase. But, make sure to have good hygiene, as you should not try to pop any boils. Let them go away on their own, or use a warm compress on it until it comes to a head.

    As well, if you do attempt to pop them, don’t touch any part of the skin, as you could in turn start another boil on that spot. That happened to me years ago when I had a boil on my leg. I ended up not cleaning it proper and I ended up getting a couple more boils on that leg. And as you guessed it, I tried to pop them, and that’s why they spread.

    If you try to pop your boils, make sure to clean your hands before touching any other part of your body.
