    Thanks Mike for talking so openly about this. Honestly, I don’t talk about it because it hasn’t been an issue for me. Kind of out of sight, out of mind, you know? I’m interesting in finding out what I can do to avoid it (beyond the normal “keep your BG in a good range” ideas).

    Great post Mike. Unfortunately many newly diagnosed T2 already have this after having pre-daibetes for so long. More awareness about pre-diabetes needs to be known

    Great post Mike. I unfortunately am one of the statistics. It happens fast and I was well aware of all I should do and watch for. 40 year T1, in great shape work out 5-6 times a week runner, biking, good A1c’s and it still got me.
    Small callus from dress shoes turned into a very long story. I am now a BK below the knee amputee.
    The positive- I still do not let it stop me from doing anything. Rode last year in JDRF Ride for the Cure in VT. Made 65 miles in the hills.
    This topic is one that needs a lot moer education. I would love to get more involved. Anyway I can contact me.

    I don’t know if this is the correct area to comment much less seek advice. I am a 20 yr t1d with what’s called a Left Charcot ankle due to neuropathy of the foot and ankle. I seek info and comments on the pros and cons of ankle fusion for PWD and could ultimately face amputation of foot and ankle.

    I’m not sure why but this blog is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?

    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
