Wondering where you fit in statistically for diabetic foot problems?

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), about 50% of people who have diabetes for 10 years will have some degree of nerve damage. The older you are and the longer you’ve had diabetes, the more likely you are to have nerve damage.

None for many years. Am now paying the price. Now feet are checked daily, and Podiatrist visits 2x a year. Have neuoropathy both feet and up to knees on legs. I don't take any medication (yet) for the pain and tingling etc. etc. because I'm on enough other pills already.
