Is the feeling of weakness in the legs, and feeling like your foot wants to go to sleep at times, signs that the diabetes is now affecting the nervous system or circulation problems have developed.? Can these be reversed or stopped? Does exercise help and if so, which ones would be best recommended?

Yes, I believe if you keep your numbers at target sometimes the effects can be reversed. Id speak to my doctor about what's going on. If we let our numbers remain high complcations can occur and they can sneek up on us. They occur silently so we have to remain in that target zone. My doc wants me to stay about under 130 and if I get up to 150 I have to inject my second insulin. I use two different insulins. One I inject every morning and its a 24 hour insulin, the other I use with meals and if I get above 150.I try and stay in that target range. My doc said complacations can occur at anything higher. I would try to improve your circulation by walking and staying active. Get the blood moving into your legs. Hopefully this will help.I wish you the very best and please keep us posted on how you are doing. God bless
