New treatment for diabetic infections
There seems to be a new treatment for diabetics who suffer from
hard-to-treat infections. The treatment has brought some promising results in cases with little hope (diabetics sometimes have difficulty fighting infections and even undergo amputation to stop the infection from spreading.)
The treatment costs between $500 and $900 U.S. per session. The way it works is that it boosts the body's natural immunity. How is it done?
The patient is placed in an enclosed "capsule" that looks like an infant's incubator. For the next few hours, the patient breathes
air that contains about 6 times the normal amount of oxygen.
I have heard some cyclists say that they kicked a cold after a good ride. Is there a connection?
