I'm a newly diagnosed diabetic since July 2012. When I was first diagnosed, I was admitted into the ICU with a glucose of 998. Nice way discover that was the cause of my inability to taste food. So, they had me on an enormous amount of insulin for over 2 months post hospital stay, and I went from taking 265 units of insulin to 50 units since then. After the hospital stay I had swollen ankles for about 2 weeks, and was advised it was due to fluid shifts. Since my insulin intake is down to 50 units, I figured I wouldn't experience any issues with fluid shifts like I did then. I don' t have swollen feet and ankle anymore, but this intermittent onset of ankle pain only on the Right foot. Is that a normal issue with Diabetes? What can I do naturally to minimize the pain?
