I hope this doesn’t come off as morbid, because I’m not! I just started reading John Walsh’s fourth edition of Pumping Insulin. On page 14 he lists the “Complication Risk in Type 1 Diabetes.” As I read down the list, I discovered that I have had some that I didn’t realize were related to the “Big D.” for instance, Trigger Finger (DuPuytren’s).
Here’s the list:
Trigger Finger (DuPuytren’s)
End Stage renal disease
The encouraging thing was the report that the lower your A1c’s the lower your risk for these complications. So which do you have or have had? What are you doing for each specifically?
