I was diagnosed with Type II about a year ago. Years of eating at expensive restaraunts and heavy 3-4 night drinking led me from a 185 College weight to 320 at age 38. I began a slow process of just trying to eat right and give up alcohol to control my illness along with metfornin and gambapentin and I have lost 60 pounds in 2 years. I still have another 50 lbs to go. I have barely excersized and despite my blood sugar level dropping to normal levels my nueropathy in my feet seems worse off then ever. Im going to start a serious excersize routine. I know that between eating right and that I feel I can manage this disease. Has anyone had success in reversing nueropathy in the feet and some of the other issues that come with it?
