I have Type II Diabetes and Gout. They complement each other. I get itching from the diabetes and pain from the gout. Here is what I do:
Does Diabetes Cause Itching?
You bet your sweet bippy as Rowan and Martin used to say. “Your bippy” is your butt. The show was Laugh-In. The YouTube videos are too long to embed here but if you have time for some fun, then go take a peak at some of the shows.
Anti-Itching Cream here!
Since I have diabetes, I have a horrible itching problem. I have to go to my dermatologist every month now and he told me to use Sarna anti-itch lotion. It works for me but I had to buy an applicator to get it on my back. There are a number of anti-etching creams available. I use Sarna because my doctor told me to use it. I buy it online but you can get it at your drug s
Do fleas like dogs and lice like hair? My podiatrist (we old folks have a number of doctors, I have three heart specialist.) told me for neuropathy to use Alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg Capsules. It is much less expensive than prescription drugs and does not have the side effects. He said we would not go to a prescription drug unless the Lipoic Acid stopped working. I was taking the acid only as needed but my son told me to take it daily to help prevent itching, which I do. You can get it at the local drub store but often I just order online for the convenience.
Does Gout Cause Pain?
Is their grass in Kentucky and plums on plum tries?
When I have foot pain from gout, I just eat a handful of dried Michigan cherries. It has always worked for me. I have a friend who has gout and has to also use prescription drugs. It is a horrible thing to wake up to gout or neuropathy. I buy mine at WinDo but you can get them from Amazon if you like.
I have two very fruitful cherry trees. All of my trees are loaded this year, cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, plums and apples. I should dry some cherries and give them a try. I could just have my daughter-in-law do it as she is always drying something in her dryer, but I just don’t feel like working her too much. After all, she has 15 kids.
Is Aging Dangerous to Your Health
Heavens no! Look at Methuselah. He lived for 969 years according to the Bible. I guess he stayed away from red meat, booze and tobacco. Https://answersingenesis.org/bible-characters/ancient-patriarchs-in-genesis/
If you don’t believe me, ask some of those friends of yours who are over 100 years old.
Remember the old joke that goes something like this?
A city bus pulled up at the stop and picked up a very old man who jumped up on the bus and scooted to his seat. The bus driver said, “You must have lived a healthy life because you still have one heck of a lot of energy.”
The old man laughed and said, “I sure did! Wine, women and song!”
The bus driver said, “You don’t look a year over 60. How old are you anyway?”
The “old” man said, “I am 23 years old.”
At the next stop, the old man jumped from the bus skipping the steps, landed on the street and jogged off. The bus driver said, “I think maybe that old man was pulling my leg.”
A passenger said, “Didn’t you see him doing dynamic tension while he was sitting there? He is Charles Atlas! https://www.charlesatlas.com/index.html
OK! I changed the joke. Took the suspense out of it. Lol
Anti Aging Products
Have you noticed that there are thousands of anti-aging products for women but few or none for men. (Actually, there are anti-aging products for men.) What they worry about is sexual capability which diminishes and often vanishes with age. (You won’t see men using vanishing cream. lol)
Men take pills for their prostate gland, often just so they can pee.I take the Advanced Prostate Health Supplement. I take it only once a day instead of the recommended dosage. I just need it to pee. lol
I Have Few Friends and Cousins of My Age Left
They have been dropping like flies in a cloud of DDT. My doctors tell me to get out on the track by my house and walk as fast as possible to get my heart beat up. I’m afraid if I do that, I’ll topple over dead. Besides, once I get to the track, I’m done walking for the day.
I had a tread mill. I gave it to my granddaughter because it was a death trap. I could have fallen on my head and broke my neck.
I have one of those pull your own weight machines. It has become a toy for my wife’s caregiver’s grandson as two minutes on the think is enough for me.
Down with old age and death!
