I have only been diabetic since Jan'09. I have had trouble with two toe infections and fungus under one nail on different feet(I will not put a pic here for the sake of all). For the fungus the doctor wanted to remove the toenail. For the infection the first time my doctor gave me antibiotics and it helped. Now the same toe started hurting yesterday and I got into the doc today. He says the toenail is the problem and "What do you want to do about that toenail?" I said I wanted it to stay on my toe and he gave me more antibiotics. Am I expected to lose all my toenails to D? Has anyone else went through this and is there another form of treatment? Is my doctor a wierdo who collects toenails and make necklaces out of them? Or is this the way it goes?
