Patsy, good to hear from you again! First, yes they have tried the "Tens Unit System" on my back for pain treatment. It didn't do much good for me, however the "Ultra Sound" treatment really seemed to do well. The bad thing was, I started passing blood so they had to stop using it. As for the "Diabetes", my oldest brother passed away a few years ago due to it. He was a lot bigger man than my other two brothers or me, and it had went into the real severe state. He had lost one foot and his sugar level would peg his "tester" out. He was only sixty two when he died. My mother had "Hypoglycemia", which is opposite of diabetes. Her sugar would get low and stay there. I've noticed a lot of new messages on the board from your area. Any luck on your Allen search? I'm beginning to think that no two Allens are from the same family. Anyway, GOOD LUCK and all my best--Dave.
