I was just recently diagnose with Avascular Necrosis. It is bone death in my hips and they are telling me it is from my Diabetes.
When I was first diagnosed, I had no problems. But, no one in my family has Diabetes. I got a rare strand of a virus and it attacked my pancreas. That's why I got Diabetes. Anyway, after my honeymoon phase, my body became insluin resistant. I would give a shot and a half hour later the insulin was untraceable in my blood stream. Because of that my blood sugars were constantly in the 700's and I lived in the hospital. Eventually, I went in to a Diabetic Coma...for TEN days and I flat lined twice during it. It was a miracle that I made it through it all.
Now it's two years later and find out that because of the lack of blood flow from being so sick, my hips were not recieving proper amounts of blood. I am only 19 and I have to have a complete hip replacement...
I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of this, knows anything about hip replacements, or can offer some advice. Also, has anyone ever had problems with insulin resistancy?
