Se trataba de un anlisis de sangre rutinario, y el diagnstico lo sorprendi: Bieringer no haba notado sntoma alguno. El mdico entr y me dijo, Creo que tiene diabetes , record Bieringer.

    Bruise/Blood Under Toenail

    Hi all,
    This is my first foot "injury" since diagnosis. I doubt it's a big deal, but I keep hearing in the back of my mind my diabetes educator saying "take care of your feet. I've seen an ulcer turn into an amputation very quickly" and it's freaking me out. Basically I dropped a heavyish object on my 2nd toe and it's bloody underneath the nail; not a lot of blood but enough to notice it's there. In your opinion, should I do anything about this?
    Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for reading. I did the same thing to my big toenail three months ago. It was the corner of a box and it hurt like hell! I just ignored it and it's fine. The podiatrist noticed it a few weeks ago and had a good look at it, then we had a giggle about the swearword I used when it happened.
    It's taking forever to grow out...

    A lot depends on your BG level. Problems occur in those people who have uncontrolled diabetes with high BGs. If your levels are under 140 all the time, then there should't be any cause for concern other than normal concern of anyone. Just keep an eye on it so you notice if the site develops an infection.
