Hi! I have just signed up for this website hoping to find some support and answers. I am taking care of my husband who has had diabetes since 2002. We were doing really well and had it under control. In July 2011 he developed a foot ulcer which required surgery. He has been hospitalized 5 times since then with various other issues due to infections and congestive heart failure. We did everything the doctors told us. We followed the Wound Specialist instructions to a tee and did all that the Primary Care dr told us. His foot is still not healed and his sugars are running high again. He is taking Glipizide and Onglyza. The Primary said that he may have to go to insulin. We have begun working on his diet again and know that he needs to exercise. However, he is not supposed to be on his foot that much. So how does he exercise???
