I got a very sobering reminder that we must be watching our blood sugar closely because complacations can and WILL happen if we don't. A personal friend of mine has type two diabetes just like I do. She has choosen to ignore her diabetes for some years now. She ate what she wanted when she wanted and behaved as if she was not a diabetic at all. Well now after doing this for a few years she noticed her toes were black. She went to the doctor and now has to have those toes removed. She's now started an insulin regiment and is paying closer attention to her diabetes. It is very sad to me that this has happened to her. It was a reminder to me that we can NOT sweep our diabetes under the rug. We must face it and control it or it will come and get us if we don't! I wanted to share her story with you as a reminder of what can happen if we choose to ignore our diabetes. So check your sugar and eat right and hopefully we can all continue to control this terriable disease!
