We’re celebrating National Diabetes Awareness month with special Diabetes Game Show podcast featuring fantastic prize giveaways courtesy of Dr. Greenfield’s Diabetic Foot, Hand & Body lotions and musical inspiration from Jazz Legend, Ella Fitzgerald.
Ella Fitzgerald, whose sweet, silvery voice made her the most celebrated jazz singer of her generation, stayed in the ‘swing of things; after having both of her legs amputated below the knee due to complications related to diabetes. But she didn’t let that stop her from doing what she loved doing best – singing.
I saw her perform live in San Francisco, CA in the early 90’s and thought she was sensational. I can only imagine the difficulties she faced while she traveled in and out of airports, hotels and venues around the world to entertain her fans. As anyone who has suffered a diabetes health-related complication such as stroke and/or amputation knows the world doesn’t slow down for you. It takes a lot more time and effort to complete everyday tasks from taking a bath to getting the mail or going to the mall. We’re proud to salute our listeners who has experienced a complication for getting back into the ‘swing of things’ like Ella Fitzgerald and living their life to the fullest by taking care of their health.
I also want to remind you that you can prevent amputations from occurring by inspecting their feet daily and by being vigilant for warning signs of ulcers, including irritation, redness, cracked or dry skin.
LISTEN NOW: We’re giving away great Dr Greenfields Diabetic Foot, Body & Hand Cream prizes on Diabetes Game Show podcast in celebration of National Diabetes Awareness month.
