Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] We lost Whizbang to sudden onset of diabetes

Sukie, my sincerest condolences to you and Steve. You no doubt did everything anyone could have in your situation. And Whizbang must have had a wonderful life with you.

Having never dealt with diabetes before, I'm wondering what the significance of checking for surface pain is...

"I wish we had checked her for ability to feel surface pain that day or
the next yesterday. I want people to think of that and remember it
if they see anything similar. Just try foot pinches."

Thanks for any further info you can give about this.

Diabetes is one of the things which can cause peripheral
neuropathy. In that situation there is deep pain but
surface sensations can become very confused, often with
no surface pain present, so if I had tried a pinch test and
she had not felt anything then peripheral neuropathy and
the possible causes of that would have been among the
things to investigate. -- Moderator (SDC)]
