I've had this problem for 27 years and after I got it controlled and on an insulin pump in 2010, everything showed up. I have nerve problems and PAD and was getting the blockage cleared every 3 months or so. The last surgery I had a by-pass done to keep amputation another step away. I can say the hard way it pays to stay on top of everything. I love my pump it helps me a lot and my doctor and nurse because I can't cheat. I also finally got a good team behind me when I lived in Seattle. I had a nurse, diet adviser, and my doctor who all worked together to help me. I got things where I am now with my PCP and Cardiac Doctor and Surgeons all in the act too. Oh and family helps too. I found that this was important to have all this help behind you. Now to start the other problem I have; weight loss-exercise!
