When I was first diagnosed with diabetes my sugar level was 892. My A1C was 17, off the charts. I couldn't eat, chew, and barely speak. My tongue was numb. I was immediately admitted into the hospital and they started me on Coumadin shots. I was later diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy. Doctors say that it most likely set in when my levels were so high. I have problems with my feet and legs but the worst for me is that I get hot easily and at times sweat profusely. I wear short sleeve tops and during colder weather I wear something over it that I can easily take off. NO, it's not menopause. Went through that years ago. I have a very supportive husband and family and that means a lot. There are days when I would rather just stay in bed but that is not the answer. I won't let DN define me.
