Cold Feet

I am frequently asked by people how I know my blood sugar was a problem. The answer is that my feet bothered me. They always felt cold. Since Jenn and I both have diabetics in our family, we are aware that circulation problems can occur in diabecice and I began to keep a check on my blood suagr levels.

This story from the News, reminds me why this is so important!

Diabetic Oregon Man ‘Doing Fine’ After Dog Eats Toes

Published March 04, 2011 | Associated Press

A diabetic man from Oregon who awoke to find that his dog had eaten three of his toes says he is recovering and hopes to leave the hospital soon.

Nathan Jones told The Associated Press on Friday that he is “doing fine” and resting, but he declined to speak further.

Jones called 911 on Tuesday to say his dog had eaten part of his right foot while he was sleeping, including three toes.

The hospital says Jones is in fair condition and was expected to go home Friday.

Jones had no feeling in his feet because of diabetes.

Roseburg veterinarian Alan Ross says the dog may have been trying to rid his owner of dead tissue, which is not uncommon.

The dog is at an animal shelter.
