Oh,yeah, I also know there are dogs that can sniff out bed bugs. Shihan, a member here on the forum, is an exterminator and the company he works for has a bed bug sniffing dog.

Kfox, I believe your personal case of diabetes has to be pretty much uncontrollable to be able to get a dog, but I don't know for sure.

My cousin's diabetes is so whack, she has pricked her finger for a test, dog goes nuts, she passed out, and the test showed a safe blood sugar level all at the same time. Another test immediately after showed her blood sugar had dropped suddenly while she was actually in the process of doing a test.

Obviously those diabetes patients like my aunt, who doesn't even need a regular finger prick, aren't high on the list to get a diabetes dog. My aunt pays attention to what she eats (not even a very strict diet) and gets regular exercise, and has no trouble at all. She's one of the very lucky ones.

If yours is severe, check into it, they are lifesavers.

Minor misunderstandung, No big deal though. I was refering to my friend's son who is almost that bad. He has an appointment with an endicrologist on tuesday, and I am hoping they can help him.

My own diabeties is under close to perfect control now, due to the fact that I learned the hard way. Losing half your sight and half of a foot is one hell of a good teacher. Sorry about the confusion trip.

No need to apologize, and in glad you've got it under control.

And if your friend's son is that bad off, yes, check into it, one of these dogs could very well save his life.
