Mon, Mar 11 3:20pm · Diabetic Foot Ulcers in Diabetes/Endocrine System

@thrasher3062 Based on my experience the
“Diabetic foot Ulcer”, would be the diagnosis. I ask because their are many different root causes to ulcers and knowing the type of ulcer dictates the type of treatment.

Diabetic ulcers can be complicated by uncontrolled blood sugars. How’s your blood sugars been?
I encourage you to discuss a high protein diet with your new physician tomorrow.

Prayers for successful treatment!!

Hello @thrasher3062
Certainly ulcers are difficult to treat at times. Can you share a bit more information? Has your physician given you a diagnosis of the type of ulcer you have? Have you been seen by your local wound clinic? What treatments have you tried and what are you currently doing? Your diet plays a huge roll in wound healing, hows your protein intake?

Thanks

Here’s a great 5 min high protein low carb snack that I hope you will enjoy! I love blueberries and so does my kids. This is simple enough that my 8 year old enjoys making it.

Hi @hazelnut I think you are referring to radiofrequency neurotomy? If so here is some information that may answer some of your questions. I am not familiar with the procedure but a 3 of my patients have had this procedure and no reported issues to date.

As you already know every procedure has pros and cons. What other treatments have you tried?

Hi @jadillow we emeet again!! As we discussed in multiple other topics, I highly recommend a second opinion and hope you will consider the experience and expertise of Mayo Clinic. It sounds like you are having complex issues that mimic many conditions and I completely understand urgency and fear in not knowing the diagnosis.
Here’s a link for more information.

@lioness
I tell you we tried some crazy stuff. Looking back I laugh out loud. To get personal for a minute, my breasts are size DDD and they tried to tape my breasts up and attached the tape At my shoulders which ripped off layers and layers and layers of skin I was bleeding. 🥴 Then we went to the brace. The weight of my breasts would pull the fracture open. All the constant movements caused costochondral chondritis and prevented the fractures from healing. Crazy stuff.

This is certainly a very important and complex appointment for you. Some friendly advice gather all medical records including but not limited to all hospitalizations, medication changes, doctors visits and tests. If your appointment is in the afternoon try to drop them off to the doctors pod in the morning so they can review before seeing you. Helps them decide what other tests they will want to order. I always include my list of questions so when we actually meet the nerves don’t get the best of me and I forget what I wanted to say. Also curious if you are keeping any logs of symptoms, dates and times and what you were doing during the episodes? How’s your blood pressure been running?
