Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic shoes uk


Avatar f tn Make sure that you wear suitable and comfortable walking shoes. You may find that having insoles in the shoes helpful too. Now that you are a diabetic, you do need to take care of your feet and yourself. Best wishes.
233488 tn?1310696703 This concept arises from the growing awareness that in a variety of diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy5 and age-related macular degeneration6, 7 (AMD), PVD is a far safer condition. That notwithstanding, entopic phenomena resulting from this event induce acute floaters. These arise from the posterior vitreous cortex itself as well as tissue that is sometimes adherent to the posterior vitreous cortex, typically parapapillary fibro-glial in origin.
Avatar n tn I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 38 years now. I inject insulin three times a day. I have become more and more aggravated with the fact that syringes are available by prescription only! Does anyone out there really believe that such a vital, simplistic medical device should not be available "over-the-counter"? What is the reason we are being told that it must be this way?
Avatar f tn Can you tell I am angry with this woman? I don't know about in USA but most medical receptionists in UK are far from pleasant people, in my experience. She told me that my HBV DNA was 9 million. I of course said are you sure? She then started to get anxious and started to say I'm not telling you anymore you'll need to come and see the doctor, I don't really understand this. I informed this woman that she had started and had now better finish.
Avatar n tn If you could only read the e-mails that come in from folks who have suddenly suffered kidney failure or who have diabetic cataracts or whose digestive systems have stopped working due to nerve damage, you would never do this again. These people who suffer complications tell us that they would do anything to be able to turn back the clock and have a second chance to take tight control over those glucose numbers and protect themselves. But once the damage is done, there is no going back.
Avatar m tn Sounds like you need some special insoles in your shoes and shoes that support the feet. Make sure you rest your feet and elevate them as much as you can. I found applying a lot of cold natural yogurt helped with my very painful foot problem. If you are overweight, losing weight will help. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn I have noticed a trend with my shoes - if i have worn closed in shoes in the summer, or plastic non-breathable boots in the winter and my feet sweat, this is when the blisters seems to make an appearance, and if bad enough will weep this clear fluid even without popping them myself. Wearing flip flops or open/airy shoes also helps to dry them out, in which state they heal quicker.
Avatar n tn My niece is homeschooled. She's type I diabetic and has problems learning in the morning hours (blood sugar level fluctuation problems), so my sister starts her schooling later in the day. When her blood sugar is high she can't add 2 plus 2, but when it's normal, she can do all her times tables. She'd probably be a C student in school. My sister also didn't trust the school nurses to stay adequately on top of measuring her blood sugar levels.
Avatar n tn Healing time is totally dependent on the individual, but is usually complete in 6 weeks. If you are diabetic you can plan on a longer period of time depending on your body's ability to heal. If you are osteoporotic it also lengthens the time it takes to heal. When in a cast, the muscles of the foot and ankle will weaken from lack of use. It can take a long time to get back the old muscle strength, again depending on your own overall health.
Avatar n tn I have blisters on several of my toes (on both feet) and it's not from athlete's foot or poor shoes. The blisters are extremely itchy/sore and are the size of a pea. I have one on each of the first 3 toes starting with my big toe. They are mostly on top of my toe between the last knuckle and my toenail, but one is on the side/tip of one toe. They are not true blisters in that there is no fluid sack. It is simply a very swollen and red hive. It seems like really firm and inflamed tissue.
Avatar n tn I only wear certain kinds of shoes - shoes that cover the top of my foot because I've very self conscious about it. Its only uncomfortable when my foot is extra swollen. I have had 2 children and with each one the swelling was incredible - but since both feet swelled the dr said it was fine. After reading all of these comments I will be doing further research. They told me I was just going to have to live with it.
Avatar n tn Perhaps that's what got the doctor's baffled as they don't fit together. Some get the minty taste when they're becoming type 2 diabetic. Are you thirsty more than usual and have to go pee frequently? Do you find you have to eat all the time otherwise you feel wiped out? Do you get blurry vision sometimes? Has anyone tested you for diabetes?
Avatar f tn I have hyprothyroidism, diabetic, and anemic. I've had some very heavy and painful periods that lasted more then a week I got so tired of it so I had surgery done and now I no longer have periods and can't have kids. I feel so depressed, my mind is so out of sorts I can't concentrate, I'm ALWAYS tired, ex left me cause I was not interested in intercourse. I'm just not myself.
Avatar n tn i see things my way and it is difficult to place myself in others shoes now for something possitive 1. when i set my mind to something i get it done, thats how i bought my house, finished 4th in my class (paramedic), married who i wanted to, started homeschooling my aspie son, becoming room mom, joining a roller derby team, helping others in the communitte 2. aspie's get all obsessed about things, once we start a project we will finish come hell or high water 3.
Avatar n tn I was experiencing the same problems and I didn't know what was going on either. I hadn't changed anything, was working out the same as usual, but had horrible pain for no reason in my calf muscles (both legs). The only thing I could link the pain too was that I bought a pair of the "Croc" shoes. I stopped wearing them and my calves stopped hurting! Not to monimize anybody elses pain of it is not caused by these shoes, but maybe this could be it for some others out there.
551343 tn?1506834118 I spoke to several people on another forum and there are 3 of them diagnosed with Erythromelalgia and all 3 have MS. 2 are from the states and 1 from UK. It is rare though as I have posted on several forums and so far have found little about this disease. Very interesting isnt it.
572651 tn?1531002957 I knew all I had to do was put my socks and shoes on, but I couldn't move to do it. I was afraid if I leaned forward, I'd fall off the table! I leaned against the wall trying to pull myself together, he poked his head back in the room and said why aren't you dressed and off the table? Are you sure your not depressed? I started sobbing!!! Then he said "Your not going to hurt yourself are you? I said WHAT? He repeated "You're not going to hurt yourself are you?
Avatar n tn for two years, and from the beginning, he hasn't lost ANY weight! And his doctor had him taking 1000mg AM, and PM. He is diabetic. I think you changing what you're eating, the amount you eat, and walking more often is the reasons why you loose weight! And also, it is VERY, VERY unhealthy to loose 19LBS in 1 week! If that's what is happening you should eat more Cal's! I've never meet a doctor who would be OK with ANYONE losing that much so fast!
665881 tn?1248930597 Most likely your symptoms could be due to peripheral neuropathy such as injury to a nerve, pressure on spinal/peripheral nerves (neuropathy),diabetic or alcoholic neuropathy, vitamin deficiency ( esp. Vitamin B12, lack of blood supply due to cholesterol plaque from atherosclerosis in the extremities, viral infection and use of certain medications. Please consult your doctor to get all these possibilities evaluation in your case for further assessment. Hope this helps.
2071518 tn?1340386943 em...My thoughts are with you & your Buddy, too......I wasn't able to respond last night, but did say a prayer for you both....... We all here have been in your shoes & It's really, really a tough decision, I know.....From what you describe, I agree with you on your choice..... When I had to do this, I didn't even include my husband.....I didn't want any trying to talk me out of it, NO conflict, No interruptions, etc....
Avatar n tn I noticed I got them when I was walking around in the street for a couple hours, then coming home and noticing them when I took my socks off. [I was wearing shoes that day too.] I only noticed I had some on my hip a few hours later. I haven't gone to the doctor yet since it was only recent, so should I or will it just fade away overtime?
534800 tn?1217170959 Glad to have found this site. I am female, 60 and from the UK. I have suffered from this rash for about 10 years. I am active, walk etc. Went through the whole thought that it was sun associated but ruled that out when I covered up and still got it, thought it was normal heat rash or maybe sweat rash but ruled those out too as the symptoms do not quite fit. Golfers vasculitis does, however, fit my symptoms.
282804 tn?1236837191 i don t even want to see the shoes and things in he closet, if i was able to get in there and take it somewhere i would. he is in denial i think, like oh do this chemo and you ll get this big remission. janalene. i think i am in as bad or worse shape than you . i haven t even gotten the gemzar yet. i am petrified of what its going to do, or not do. i just want to be me again, i even heard people say (got back to me) why her, she was always happy and did all these things and all that.
Avatar f tn Ergonomics is very important, to reduce this use proper shoes, proper bed and proper positions while working, sitting and driving etc and continue your Orthopaedic consultancy. Take care!
Avatar n tn My finger tips curl as well as my toes in their shoes, their want is more powerful than my control, always restraining my fists to my sides in embarrassment and slap of sanity. It's unexplainable really, very odd, but very obsessing. I also don't like to eat processes food, people may call me a "health nut" but I really do just like those foods, ive always been this way and never really fit in before it was the "cool thing to do" in higher level high school/college.
Avatar n tn Also, and the woman who gives me maggaes told me this, make sure you have your fallopian tubes tested for bloackages, as it's a simple procedure, but one most doctors fail to tell their patients about. One thing i will say to you all is that up until i went to a prvate doctor in th UK i was ignored and almost ridiculed by doctors when i went to them with my symptoms.
Avatar n tn But it takes my breath out and I jerk in response to the shock. I have been a Diabetic for 13 years and no doctor has been able to explian this. Does anyone here even know what it is called? Or what causes it?
551343 tn?1506834118 Five weeks later I had a second opinion with a leading UK MS specialist which my GP had arranged months before. he took hold of my hands and said I had done the right thing in coming to see him. In my notes he wrote "I think this is ms". I was admitted to hospital for a week with lots of testing. At the end of the week he came to see me and said I think this is ms, but it's rare. He explained it was rare as I didn't show lesions on mri but did show atrophy of optic nerve.
Avatar n tn I, too, have had this heat sensation in the right side of my calf (right leg) that started about a week ago and is becoming more frequent everyday. I am a diabetic who also had my thyroid removed about 15 years ago and taking Synthroid. I just went for my quarterly blood work today and will be seeing my endocronologist on Thursday. My father is a Chiropractor and seems to think that this results in too much blood flowing through the leg artery at once.
