Today we are here with Amir, he came intoour office Valentine Chiropractic originally by driving by and seeing our our previousads in the newspaper regarding Laser and Decompression treatments. He came in with Plantar Fascitisand came to realize after being examined that he really had Peripheral Neuropathy. He wentto Kaiser, tried to put him in a cast for 4 weeks and he started to lose strength inhis legs, he was also on pain pills which were making him violently sick. He was lookingfor some other modality to help him, he felt there had to be something out there that couldhelp. I happened to be driving by your building and i looked and saw that you talked aboutbeing Gluten Free and Peripheral Neuropathy,
so I called and talked to your brother DrLeonard Valentine and had a good conversation and felt very comfortable that you guys couldhelp me with my chronic plantar fascitis. The pain I had was not just in my heels it wasthe whole bottom of my foot hurt plus my heel and Kaiser was telling me it could come fromyour back so they did back xrays, nothing showed up on my back xrays, so then theysaid it was my weight. It turns out it wasn't my weight it turns out I had another ailment,that needed to be treated and healed, so now since starting treatment which has been about2 weeks and the whole bottom of my foot and my heel that I'm not feeling any pain in.So this is the first time in 2 years that

What are the trends here, Mark? The trends are of course that diabetesis increasing in Australia for a whole variety of reasons. Partly that's because of the ageingof the population.
We know that diabetes isincreasingly prevalent as you get old. The risk of diabetes increases with age. As our population ages, that also means that our risk of diabetes increases. That's part of the reason. Also, there's changes to our lifestyle less physical activity, more overweight.
