Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if i'm in the correct section or not but i was looking for info on winter gloves. I work outside most of the time and my fingers get so cold they hurt.I was wondering if anybody has this problem and if you found a brand and type that really worked. Thanks for any info you have B0bby

Pack…thanks :) My anemia is actually related to something other then my diabetes…It is however causing havoc for me right now…as the I.V.Therapy I need is glucose based and not being tolerated by my system…I go to Mayo in Jan for a long term treatment plan which will hopefully get me past all this interference :)

Thank you :) and stay warmmmm :)

I have circulation issues…The wind chill here in IL just about kills me some days…OMG! lol…At night sometimes I have to take a hot bath just to unfrost my toes :( I'm anemic as well though so its a combination issue…I love those little hand warmers you can stick in your gloves…course that doesn't help someone working…cant have things stuffed in your gloves then…but for the average diabetic those little warmers are so nice! Can get um right at the counter of any Walgreens etc…inexpensive.. :)

Some people are just simply new to the site and are not sure where to post certain things. I think its cool, cause someone always seems to be able to answer the question, or make a good comment or guide them to where they need to be. Keep those questions coming!!

I use a good pair of I am not going to spell this right
Neoprean gloves I use thin cotton first then the neoprean
this keeps them toasty for me
Hope this helps

Good advice neosporin ointment or just plain vasoline with light weight cotton gloves under winter gloves works well for myself. Keeps my hands from drying out and cracking open.
