Hospitalized
« on: August 09, 2015, 07:26:32 AM »
So, I went to the ER last night, with an infection in my leg, from a poorly maintained scrape. It had gotten feverish in an attempt to expel the pus in it. Long story short,they think it's apparently serious enough to admit me. I'm on a Yancomycin (antibiotic) drip. I'll update as I can.

Do you mean a muscle scrape or a scrape that pierced flesh?  Either way, I hope it goes well very soon.

Damn dude, hope you get better soon. At least you're on powerful meds so hopefully you won't be there too long.

Hope to hear back from you soon. How did you scrape yourself, and how long before it started to fester?

Sorry for the long delay in a response. I got out of the hospital on Wednesday evening. Last thing I heard before discharge was that it's a strain of Staph that's very killsble with penicillin. This all came about because (and I did not know about this) bacteria are attracted to sugars, and anyone that knows me will know that my blood sugars have always averaged high with my diabetes.

I'm cleaning and re
urse is a completely different scenario than mine).dressing the wound daily, and have follow up appointments with three doctors to see about getting my health better overall. Going back to work tonight, jopefully no mishaps will result.

However, one of my roomstes heard staph and jumped the gun, telling me I couldn't stay at home. Needless to say, I am looking to possibly move out in the next month or so. I'm extremely pissed at the guy because all he's going on is that they had to quarantine soldiers in Iraq for this (which of co

I remember reading some time ago that diabetes can be heavily mitigated by controlling your diet. I'd even heard it's curable that way. Ask your doctors about what you can do with your diet to manage your diabetes, and what kind of exercise you should start doing. Walking up to an half-hour a day would be an easy start.

actually, that depends on your weight, fi you;re more then 10-50 pounds or so overweight(exact figures depends on your frame), you don;t want to start with walking excessively because that will destroy your legs.

Push ups, push ups, push ups, sit ups, sit ups, sit ups.  there's a reason they made such a  big deal of them in the military. once you/are if you already are near, your target weight, Cardio Cardio, cardio.  THEN large amounts of walking and running.  you can't do much walking or running if you have no stamina, and you're crushing your knees and micro fracturing the long bones ion your legs.

Diet.  Almonds, pumpkin seeds, and spices. Cinnamon needs to be organic, not the flavored sawdust from the store.  This also helps with DH,T Weight, and a variety of other things.  Garlic, peppers, etc....

basically, anti oxidants and the monounsturated fats that most of us are told to avoid because they raise cholesterol, reduce blood sugar.  A nutritionist wold probably be the best bet to BALANCE these things.

Unfortunately, that applies to type 2 diabetes. I have type 1, aka juvenile diabetes aka insulin dependent diabetes.

Oh. Well, Zeo's got the right idea. A little exercise, along with a balanced diet, will help your metabolism and cardiovascular health, though that goes for everyone.
