I've just returned from my podiatrist (he said my feet look pretty much OK, phew). He mentioned something about a brand new American report. He was short on specifics but what he said that people are becoming non-diabetic by being able to reverse the causes, ie lose weight, maintain diet etc. He said that the study showed that diabetic people are showing as not being diabetic any more. Now we all know that weight loss, better eating, exercise etc can help stave off the effects of this disease, but I, like you would be a bit wary. I'd like to know if anyone else has heard of this report (apparently in the AMA??), what it says etc. I'll have a look around, but I thought I'd let you know as soon as I heard it.
ps. If you're not sure about
visiting a podiatrist, do it! The guy I saw today did a lot of work with the aboriginies in our state's north. One in two
people there have diabetes and he has seen the horrible effects of not looking after your feet.
