On a newsgroup for diabetes, I've recently read that people who stay on a low-carb diet long enough often find that any problems they have with dry, rough elbows go away.

Hi: I have extremely dry skin and since I am a diabetic I take good care of my hands and feet but have had a problem finding a lotion I like. Most are greasy or too thin, etc. I finally found an excellent Lotion. PALMER'S cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E, COCENTRATED CREME. This stuff is great. I put it on my feet for 2 days, they were moderately calloused and rough, and they are soft and smooth now, after only 2 days. Also, It takes the itching away immediately that comes with dry skin. Amazing!. I highly recommend you try it. I got mine from Walmart.

Thanks Robert, that helps. I am planning on taking a trip down with my S.O. and kids and checking out the area. It does seem very nice and relatively inexpensive housing seems prevalent.

Just remembered a little more. The areas outside the Beltline (the surrounding circle of interstate highways) tend to be nicer than those inside. Most of the large grocery stores are now outside the Beltline.

Raleigh has a few good sized hospitals. When I lived there, I never needed an endo.
Generally, the northern half is nicer; the southern half tends to be lower income.

North Carolina State University is located there - a portion of the Univerity of North Carolina system that objected to being renamed UNC-R.

The North Carolina State Fairgrounds are located there.




Some medical schools about a county away, in case you need to go that far to find an endo:

My name is David and I have MEN1, (no pancreas) and type 1 (other) diabetes. I am looking to relocate to the Raleigh area in a year or two and was wondering about ENDO support, Area's that are nice, basically anything anyone can share about the greater Raleigh area.

Looking for a support group in the Raleigh/Cary area. Does anyone know of one?

Hope you have a happy and healthy new year.

I live in Garner, NC and have both a pump and CGM, am now considered a "senior" but a young one at heart and I guess age wise so I would be interested in a more local group, am currently going to a pump support group in Raleigh. Please contact me.

Looking for seniors with Pump and/or CGM in Southern Wake County, NC

I am looking for seniors that have a Pump and/or CGM in South Eastern Wake County
(Willow Spring – FuquayVarina Area) that would be interested in forming a small social group to share experiences and have fun in spite of our problems.

Please let me know if you are interested. Send me a message or replay to this thread.
