I'm 40 years old and just diagnosed as a diabetic. In the grand scheme of life, it isn't that big of a deal. It runs in the family and I you just can't outrun genetics. Regardless, having to stick myself a couple times a day on the same fingers I use to skin critters has me a little concerned. I have been using latex gloves when I skin, but I seem to put holes in them pretty quickly. Any of you guys have a tips on good skinning gloves? Or any tips for a diabetic addicted to K9 trapping?

The good Lord sent a friend of mine to visit me a couple days before I was diagnosed. That friend is finishing up leukemia treatments. I am a blessed man.
Thanks

Are you type 1 or type 2?


Type one diabetic.

There is a poker thing (for lack of the proper word)with some meters that lets you take the blood sample from your arm instead of the finger. I was diagnosed just over a month ago with type 2 also. Sort of knew it was coming for quite some time though. Metformin has helped me get my blood sugars down to good levels, the side effects are nasty though. I hadn't thought about poking my fingers and skinning animals until I read this. Thanks for posting.

My wife has had type 1 since she was 14 years old! (59 now) She take 3 shots of insulin every day.
One thing I have notice is a cut or bruise takes a long time to heal up.

cliffwhy, if I could add a few things. My cousin when she was 5 developed diabetes and that was 40 years ago. They thought she would not make it to 40 and she has a child. She is the expert on diabetes as she does some of advanced treatments in she has a meter which self injects. She uses a German synthetic insulin and works full time. I just mention this as there are many advances beyond the daily pricking and sticking. You should look up the information online and speak to others.
Even some of the homeopathy remedies show promise, including regulating the diet. A great deal of diabetes stems from inflamed pancreas which retards the B cells which produce insulin, as what I have been told.
Get some recommendations on a glucose meter and you may not have to be sticking your fingers. It is called a glucometer.
I hope that helps.

I also suffer from DMII. There are a few companies out there that make strong rubber gloves for tactical medics. I like the Black Talon and Bear Claw gloves. Both are sold by North America Rescue.

Thanks, Dinny

I wish it were easier to find gloves that extend a little further up a persons wrists.
