Diabetes – A Scary Disease

Every 20 seconds. That’s how often someone is diagnosed with diabetes. That means that within the past week, over 120,000 friends, family members and colleagues will be told they have the disease.

People with diabetes can develop many different foot problems. Even ordinary problems can get worse and lead to serious complications. Foot problems most often happen when there is nerve damage also called neuropathy, which results in loss of feeling in your feet. Poor blood flow or changes in the shape of your feet or toes may also cause problems.

Nerve damage can also lead to changes in the shape of your feet and toes. Ask your health care provider about special therapeutic shoes, rather than forcing deformed feet and toes into regular shoes.

Cathi L, CPA, talks about her diabetes and what has happened this past year.  “I am diabetic with all the problems that go along.  One of my greatest fears is losing my legs as my grandfather lost his from diabetes.  I suffered severe neuropathy in both my legs and feet.  In addition to that, I had 3 stints put in my left leg last summer and was diagnosed with PAD.  I was experiencing severe leg cramps nightly.  Hardly a night went by when I wasn’t awakened by them and had to jump out of bed and walk around.  This would happen several times a night.  Since taking Vivix, I have not been awakened a single evening with a leg cramp.  So wonderful!   And I can feel my toes again.  They no longer feel like wooden appendages down there.  Bless Shaklee and Vivix!  I now experience full nights of restful sleep”.

Are Appreciated!
