I have suspected an issue for a while. The hair from my knees down went away an dmy feet have been hurting for about 2 years. Recently at night the pain continues to become imense until I get out of bed. I just took my sugar reading and it was over 400 so I made an appointment with my Doctor for Thursday morning. I have spent about 6 hours on this great site reading the discussions and learning about Type 2 Diabetes. Im assuming I have neuropathy, does this go away once I start on medicine, diabietic diet and excersize? Im currently 6'4 and weigh 260 so I'm assuming losing a solid 50 lbs or so is important. This diet thing is gonna be harsh for me, though Im sure it is for most. I haven't drank alcohol in over 2 years at all, I had a stint as a bar and club owner and had my share of drinking and eating badly to last me a lifetime. I see fiber is important but not processed fiber, how can I know if my bread Im buying (I get 12 grain) is processed, same with my cereal? Thank you all in advance for answering my questions, looks like a major lifestyle change is on its way for me.
