About the same time my Marine corps enlistment was up in ’83, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Throughout the years, my diabetes got progressively worse. My blood sugar levels became more and more erratic and my activities became continually more restrictive.
I couldn’t feel my legs from the knee down. I was so tired and fatigued all the time, I felt like my life was being robbed a little at a time. I think the best way to describe it is mental anguish.
When I went to the Doctor for a broken leg, he told me I was in kidney failure and I needed dialysis. I told the Doctor I needed to go home and pray about it. I called the doctor and told him I was not going to go on dialysis, I had prayed about it and I was ready to die.
I was told I had about 2 weeks to live.
My Daughter-in Law set up a consultation with the Diabetic Renewal Center. I didn’t want to go, but because it was free - I agreed to go to make her happy.
When I discussed the treatment, they were friendly and helpful. They weren’t pushy at all, but took their time with us. They explained everything in terms I could understand. I decided I would give it a try. That was almost 2 years ago.
After just a few treatments, I began to feel much better. I thought maybe this was it. I felt so much better, I decided to get on dialysis. I think the treatments I got at Diabetic Renewal Center are an answer to my prayers!
