I never thought I had any complications from diabetes. I keep my H1AC's usually well below the 7's. Recently I read that one of the only outward signs of T1 is boils. When I read that I remembered a few boils I've had in the past. Unfortunately, there is one that seems to appear in the same spot on my face once or twice a year. It's so big and horrible looking I don't feel like leaving the house. Well it's back again and I'm sitting in my house hating that I'm going to look like a monster for a least a week, possibly more.
I know, I should see the doctor but it takes at least 3 weeks and sometimes months to get a doctor's appointment with my HMO (Kaiser Permenente).
Anyone have any suggestions?
