Welcome back Diadonna!! As a diabetic who had a diabetic grandfather that lost his leg, I definitely can relate to the scare of any type of foot wound. The slightest thing and I freak out. However, we have a lot of tools available to assist us in lowering our bs and living healthier. Do some type of physical activity each day, stick to a diet plan that only has healthy carbs, drink plenty of water, and read all of the articles that you can about diabetes. I wish you much success!!

Diadonna, feet problems can lead to big problems. Those extremities can develop some problems. Just one of the Diabetes side effects. Hope things improve to you. Good luck on the gout issue. I have severe arthritis in my foot joints. always one thing or another with D2.
