Mon, Mar 11 3:12pm · Diabetic Foot Ulcers in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Dawn, I looked through my records and did not find an official diagnosis just that it was Type #2 Diabetic ulcer. I have lost toes on both feet and in order to heal those wounds they packed the wounds with an antibiotic that worked. The current ulcer, I am changing doctors so that I have more control over treatment. I change dressing twice a day and wash the area and trim the dead skin away and use 91% alcohol to disinfect the area then bandage the area. I have a new doctor I am seeing tomorrow and I will see what they say. This all just started again so I am hoping for better results this time around. I am currently looking to start on Pedyphar 60 to help in the healing process and as to my diet I have changed so much in the last year of dropping carbs to no soda and more water.

Sat, Mar 2 1:40pm · Trying to recover from a c.diff infection in Digestive Health

I was told that Vancomycin only kills half the C-Diff bug and once you come off it C-Diff will always come right back. My son just did the FMT and was told it has a 85% success rate so fingers crossed.

My son who is severely disabled was diagnosed with C-Diff from his last hospital stay four months ago and has been on Vancomyicyn ever since, I was told by doctor that this antibiotic only kills half the bacteria, so after careful research the fecal microbial transplant was his best option to rid him of this. Fingers crossed we go tomorrow for colonoscopy to do transplant.
