Hello everyone. My mother was diagnosed with diabetics about 5 years ago. She has lost weight considerably ever since then. About 1 months ago, she complained of having no feeling at all on one of her toes. Even if she steped on pin or someone cut her on this toe, she could not feel anything. I suggested she went to see her Doctor. On geting to the clinic, the doctor suggested that she should be admitted as her blood sugar level was too high and it needed to be controled before they can do anything about the toe. They gave her different drugs which makes sometimes the sugar level to be too low. Last week she colapsed twice. A the end of last week, the doctor called me and told me they need to amputate this toe because it is infected and that was the only thing she could suggest at the moment. After several cosultations, I approved the one toe amputation.Surprisingly for me, the doctor called me again that they will need to amputate the entire feet as it has been infected and that is the only thing we could do if I do not want her to die. Please I just want to ask anyone here if amputation is the only solltion for such problem? I look really confused now.
