By this you are saying that all your finger tips (and thumbs too) are completely without feeling? Also wondering if you feel the poke when you take your Blood Glucose (BG) levels?

It leads me to wonder what your A1c has been and how your BG levels have been running?

This is something which you need to report to your Endo (if you have one - as a T1 you should) or to your GP.

It possibly could be Diabetic Neuropathy, but it could also be one of a host of other reasons or causes as well. (pinched nerves, medication side effects, ect) Check with your Dr(s) and have them test you to confirm or deny the other causes.

Praying God's best for you and yours
