THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Diabetic Must Use Care Against Infection By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Enterprises Ana. When Average Citizen gets a small cut, bruise or blis- ter on his foot he is not unduly worried. With proper treatment, it will heal and be forgotten. But for the diabetic such a lesion may lead to gangrene or an in- fection that refuses to heal be- cause of impaired circulation. Diabetes is characterized not only by a malfunction of the rancreas but also by a nar- rowing of the arteries. If the diabetes is not controlled, the arterial disease may affect any part of the body. Corns, by ex- irting a constant pressure on he small arteries in the toes, can also shut off the loqal blood supply in a diabetic and lead o gangrene. The normal body's protection gainst infection white blood cells and antibodies is car- ried in the blood stream. Be- :ause in the diabetic the cireu- ation is impaired, these protec- ive elements are not brought o the germs in amounts suffi- ient to kill them. Furthermore, w decreased presence of oxy- ;en in the lesion enables germs hat flourish only in the absence f oxygen to gain a foothold, uch germs invade normal tis- ues only when a wound is very eep. Persons with diabetes should ake special care not to let heir hands or feet get cold be- ause cold constricts the arter- and further impairs the cir- ulation. Tobacco should be voided because, in any form, also constricts the arteries. right shoes or socks, elastic gar- ers and crossing the legs while tting should also be avoided. improve the circulation, a brisk dally walk Is recommend- ed and, above all, keep the dia- betes under control. Q Could trouble cause ringing in the ears, blur- red vision, heat waves before the eyes, loss of balance, a feel- ing of pressure in the forehead and mild headaches? Do smok- ing or certain foods make it worse? Are there any drugs or nose drops that will give last- ing relief from sinus trouble? A The only symptoms you listed that might be caused by sinus trouble are a feeling of pressure in the forehead and headache. Both are usually worse in the morning and clear up before noon. Smoking can aggravate it, but a food would make it worse only if you were allergic to it. If you have a chronic sinusitis that does not yield to the usual treatment, your doctor should determine the cause. ONE OF US ALTO'S STAYS AWAKE IN CASE OF VAMPIRES CAMPUS CLATTER-By Lurry Lewis >IRPS, .-f BLONDIE-By Chic Young Doctors Receive Rules For Sterilization Plan OTTAWA (CP) Ontario doctors were presented with ethical rules here governini operations to sterilize men ant women. But they are only temporary pending the Canadian Medica Association's new code of ethics to be made public next month and expected to spark lively de- bate at the national associa- tion's annual meeting in Winni- peg. The interim DMA policy says sterilization of men and women is ethical if performed by qualified doctor in an active treatment hospital or, for men, In a place with adequate facili- ties.

Dr. 0. Z. Younghusband of St. Catharines, Ont., chairman of the OMA ethics committee, re- ported acceptance of the new policy by the OMA at a news conference.

Dr. Younghusband said th council asked the committee t< take a more detailed look at th ethical problems involved in doctors who have financial in declaration that demanding payment in advance a unethi- cal. _Dr. F. T. H. Porter, OMA as- sistant secretary, said the coun- cil considered all factors were not examined by the committee, although generally the council agreed that it is unethical to de- mand payment in advance from patients. For example, he said, a sur- geon planning to do cosmetic surgery at a patient's request, perhaps to enlarge the breasts, might be stuck with the cost of the materials if the patient changed her mind. The OMA endorsed provision to the press by doctors of fac- tual information about surgical procedures such as organ trans- plants. But efforts should be made to withhold the names of organ donors, recipients and physidans.
