UPDATE: A Few Things Some People Some People Don't Seem to Realize

Just in case you may be among those who don't take a staff infection or type 2 Diabetes seriously, you may learn something from the following information.

Did you know that Hypoglycemia (or low blood sugar) is a warning and precursor  to diabetes?  Well, it is.  It doesn't mean you need to eat more sugar, but less, even possible removing sugar from your died entirely.  If you don't believe that, do some research, and find out for yourself.   Have your doctor explain how it works.  Many years ago, I was also diagnosed as being Hypoglycemic.  I learned about it all, and since then, I very seldom eat sweets, but I do eat plenty of healthy vegetable, as well as sea foods, such as shrimp, calamari (squid), octopus, as well as fish that is considered the most healthy.

Making needed dietary changes can and does add years of life and keeps you feeling much better than when you are eating things which contain processed things such as HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), GMO (genetically modified organisms) in such things as most corn produced in the United States, and almost all soy beans and soy products, including protein derived from soy.

Presently, I know of at least two persons who have lost parts of their legs, and one of those is about to have her third surgery to amputate a portion of her leg, from the effects of diabetes.  She loves sweets, and apparently likes sweets better than live itself.
Irresistible Sweets?
A neighbor who is suffering from gangrene refuses to have her leg amputated to save her life, so they are still attempting to treat the infection, though this lady is in her nineties, she most likely not survive.  I suppose she would rather die with her leg intact than to live without it.

Another extended family member chose to keep eating her sweets, and go blind, lose kidney function, and to die than give up sweets. She died needlessly, in her mid fifties.

If you had to give up something you love to eat in order to stay alive, or to save a limb or organ, would you, or could you give that up?

I have another family friend who was born a Type 1 diabetic.  This man is now in his sixties, and he has always been very careful of his diet.  His wife is like a she bear when someone shows lack of consideration with him and his medical condition.  She makes sure he has a safe, and healthy diet, for which he is eternally gratefully.  He has also had many surgeries in his lifetime, even on his back, as well as other serious health issued.  This man is loved by all who know him, and he is always ready to do whatever he can to help others, too.

Educate yourself, and enjoy a longer, healthier and happier life, as well as the extra energy that comes with the changes to your diet and exercise program.

My Friend's Leg Yesterday Morning

Same Injury After Morning Cleansing
I also have a friend who got a staff infection some twenty years ago while undergoing surgery.  Recently, she got a bad bruise on her leg.  At first, it just seemed to be a bad bruise, but even though it at first appeared to be healing, it turned into an open wound.  It has been more than a month now, and it is now an open wound.  She has been taking prescribed antibiotics, as well as almost daily antibiotic injections, with only limited and temporary improvement.  She has also been to the Emergency Room on at least one occasion.  She finally was referred to a wound management doctor, and we are going there this morning.

Take good care of your health, and be sure to eat a good diet, limiting sweets, as well as foods which contain additives, and artificial colorings, etc., as these things can and do affect one's health and ability to recover from injuries and illness, as well.
Going into Surgery?

Take Care of Your Health!

Good Health To You

Update: May 21, 2010

My friends leg is finally nearly healed.  She last saw the wound specialist Tuesday last, and there are only a couple more layers of skin to re-grow to completely close the open wound she has been nursing for close to three months.  She is still wearing a waterproof covering to shower, as well as an ACE bandage to help prevent swelling.  Any swelling could cause the newly healed wound to tear open again, creating more complications, and taking even longer to fully heal, and allow time for the newly formed skin to strengthen, so it will be as strong as the surrounding area.

When I get a chance, I will take new photos to show what the fully healed wound looks like.  There should be little if any scarring, since the wound healed from the inside out.
