At the last soaraway Shoot Up meet up I was discussing poll options and suggested doing one which asked which part of you would pack in first as a result of diabetes-related complications. This was met with general rejection and repugnance that I could suggest something so horrible. This, of course, was like a metaphoric red rag to a bull so a poll asking exactly that question went up the next day. Once I’d recovered from my hangover.
Anyway, without further ado, here are the results in full:
What part of your diabetic body will pack up first?
- Eyes (39%)
- Sense of humour (27%)
- Feet (12%)
- All of the above (12%)
- Kidneys (9%)
- Liver (1%, 0 Votes)
So obviously us diabetics worry most about our eyes and least about our livers. This much was obvious from the last Shoot Up meet up.
This month, regular contributor Caroline has suggested the far more sensible “If you could have in-depth conversations about diabetes care with someone, which do you think would have the most beneficial effect on your care and management?”
- diabetes specialist nurse
- doctor or consultant
- local elected politician
- fellow diabetic
- friends and family
- supreme deity with magic wand
So there we have it, vote away down on the right hand side of this page and I’ll give you the results in a month or so. Enjoy!
