Hi everyone, hope everyone's doing good my DC family!! I have not been on in a while, been having some personal issues. I was just wondering if any of you can tell me your experiences with nueropathy… I have only been diagnosed with type 2 for about 7 months and am having feelings with I think is nueropathy, I get random tiny pains on my legs and hands…does this mean it will progress further? I have yet to get this checked out but was wondering if it can be slowed down? Would anyone like to share their experiences with nueropathy?? Does this mean it will now continue to progress? I'm 37 , weigh about 150 and am still trying to lose weight, at diagnosis I was 180 :( anyways my BG has pretty much been in check since my diagnosis:) my AIC was 5.4 and will be getting another one this month…

I have it in my feet. My doctor told me it would clear up once my numbers went down. He was correct. I know when my blood sugar gets high because that is the only time it flares up and that is only if my blood sugar goes higher than 150. Thankfully, I have not had a problem with it in almost a year because I do everything I can to keep from getting really high.

I have "burning" neuopathy from my knees to toes in both legs. from my elbows to fingertips I have a feeling like my arm is "asleep" (both arms).

I understand that keeping one's BG levels stable as possible helps to ward off or postpone neuro. Keeping one's BG levels below 140 mg/dl is said to work too.

Congrats on your 5.4! I pray it is the same or lower on your next test
