I have a lot of problems with my skin such as cysts//abscesses//boils and other 'minor' complications like small blemishes that scab all over my legs and sometimes on my back and arms. They are hardly noticeable to the naked eye, but obvious to the touch. I also believe cases of thrush and other yeast infections may be related to my uncontrolled diabetes. There are MANY other conditions I think relate to the fact that I have had uncontrolled blood glucose levels for over a decade.

Be careful, my fellow insulin injectors —All the lectures you hear from doctors, they aren't just scare tactics. This is a REAL disease with REAL consequences. Take control while you can. The longer you wait, the harder it ends up being!
