This is an encouraging and upbeat discussion of how with greater ability to reduce/manage our blood glucose levels, the rate of amputations in adults has decreased dramatically.
My nephew-in-law diet after repeated amputations of a few more inches of toes, feet, leg, until they could not amputate more and the gangrene took his life so this one hit close to home for me. We lost a great guy and early (medically) retired police officer when he died.
See the one page link for details of this interesting and encouraging story.
