Interesting take on this, although it would appear that many of the things to do, more exercise, stop smoking and slim down are the same as many people who are exhibiting the symptoms of diabetes should already be following.
So even in cases when the advice has been ignored and diabetes has been contracted it should be made clear to sufferers that they need to do the things listed to reduce the issues associated with diabetes.
I have seen this happen to family members, Stuff gets cut off. Not a good thing!

My feet have been a source of pain for the past 4-5yrs
nothing can really take away that pain…I watch my diet and walk daily, but when that pain strikes..it is very painful.
I see my Foot Doctor every 6 weeks I check my Blood Pressure and Blood glucose regularly…
I am going on vacation this week, and the part that I most dislike will be the Flight… I always have major pain in both my feet., something to do with the cabin pressure I think. I do try to get up and move around, but the pain is unbearable..Any advice??
