Profile Information

The PRIMARY person in my life who has diabetes has
Type 2 diabetes
How do you hope to benefit from TuDiabetes?
Need to find some help for my daughter
Date diagnosed
March 15, 2000
Tell us more about you (optional)
I'm a mother of an almost 44 yr old daughter,who has been battling this for over 12 years.She has already lost 2 big toes,has lost the feeling from her feet to her knees and is now losing the feeling in her hands.She does Dialysis 3 times a week if not more and she is struggling.Her BP keeps dropping dangerously low she is in a lot of pain and told me today she just doesn't want to do this anymore.And as a Mom I feel helpless and there is nothing I can do to fix her.They will not put her on a program for Kidney Transplant because she is overweight,and because she is on Medi-Cal she is treated badly.I don't know where to turn to get her the help she needs and I'm afraid if we don't I may lose her.

Thank You
Raette Reihs
