I have the newest in compression fashion....the UnaBoot! Great news! No signs of infection and as I get the fluid away from my legs, the pain I have while walking will alleviate. Low sodium + high protein = no pain. I am learning so much! I love it!
What happened Tuxi?
@KodiakIsland I have diabetes type 2 and not always following directions got me in trouble with a leg ulcer. Eating too much salt and fast food made it form and it’s one of those things where a high glucose level in the blood makes it worse and hard to heal. The end result can be amputation. So changing diet, a round of antibiotics for a month and using 10% Bacitracin made a big difference. I am like a kid so I love talking about what I am learning about my journey of type 2.
Wow good to know. Glad everything is alright. Scary.
@KodiakIsland Thank you so much!😊❤️🙏🏻❤️
@SandyisGettingSteamed @SpiceOfOurLife @KodiakIsland actually you should eat more fat and if you prepare your own food, you should increase your salt ie electrolytes. Home cooking uses far less salt than store bought items. This isn't a criticism, just my take. Lots of info in the SAD (standard american diet), which is killing us slowly. I stay 20 grams or less of carbs a day.
I have Diabetes 2 that was getting out of control a few years back. I managed to talk my way in to a Doctor run study on learning to control Diabetes. Only 4 months, very strict diet. Meats, veggies, limited fruit & hard cheese, 70%+ dark chocolate. Avoided most grains, carb heavy foods.
Lost 50 pounds (no extra exercise), A1C wemt from 8.0 to 5.8.
This recipe I developed kept me on track. Replaced a meal (or 2). Magic Muffins:

One important tip the Doctor shared was to divide your weight by two then try to drink that many ounces of plain water each day.
Be sure to read labels carefully, sugar is added in the most unexpected places.
I use plant based sweeteners like Stevia and Monkfruit.
I found Paleo and Keto recipes tend to work best. Just type what I want to eat in a search engine with Paleo or Keto and can frequently find a version.
Here's a favorite website:
Wide range of recipes for anyone. Also a Baking Basics link on the homepage with information on sugar and flour substitutes.
@Bunniesmommy Thank you!😊❤️🙏🏻❤️
@LTGSevenTen @SandyisGettingSteamed @SpiceOfOurLife @KodiakIsland We should ALL stay away from processed and refined foods. Also, while not all organic foods are necessary, there are certain ones we should all buy: strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, grapes, celery and tomatoes. These are worth spending the money on for organic products.
Happy you feel better. 💕
@JM Thank you! I’m so excited about what is medically possible that I can’t stand it!😊❤️ Not looking for extra attention but if I can help anyone else with these experiences, it’s all good! I’ll be dancing in my UnaBoot tonight!
Great news, so happy for your news. 🙏
@bjssunshine Thank you! So many people have type 2 and I’ve been reading their experiences on the internet. Saudi Arabia is gaining so many cases because like us, we went from an agrarian society to an industrial to a white collar economy, but our diets never changed with it. So now we have to relearn eating habits.
Completely understand! I was diagnosed type 2 about 30 yrs. ago, right after I started teaching. Have probably, like you, read everything that is available. People without it do not understand since most "look" healthy, all the damage is going on inside.
@bjssunshine Definitely! It can be pretty scary.
Yes, but there have been so many insights and medicine from research that has improved the diagnosis. Fifty years ago was pretty much the final notice. Just got to have faith.
@bjssunshine Definitely! The changes since back then have been amazing!
@SpiceOfOurLife Happy for you!!
@Beemer4Trump Thank you so much!😊❤️🙏🏻❤️
@SpiceOfOurLife 😊 💕
@SpiceOfOurLife Used to work for a wound care doctor. It's amazing what they do now.Best of luck to you as you heal.
@Joycevor Thank you! Yes, they work miracles!
@SpiceOfOurLife Feel better!!!
@SpiceOfOurLife I worked for a podiatrist that specializes in diabetic wound care. I used to help apply Una boots
@Give_Me_Liberty It’s great! I thought it might be uncomfortable in hot weather, but I really like wearing it.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
