I have a tendancy to not take my blood sugar all the time, and I know that is a reason why I feel the way I do. Having diabetes for 15 years now, I don't know if you would see signs of complications so early. I take my medication and count my carbs like I should, but don't test before hand. My A1C's are between 6.3 and 7.4, I don't exercise on a daily basis, just every so often, and work a physical job in a warehouse. My body just feels run down all the time and my legs and feet are very sensative to touch. I guess I'm looking for suggestions or if anyone else has the same problem.

Howdy Bhoov.
I am wondering why you choose not to test your blood all the time.

I am T2, and I have the burning and sensative legs & feet. I suspect that was because I didn't take enough care of my body for a while, and let my BG#s go too high for too long.

I have worked in a warehouse for a while too (I was not T2 at that time) so I know that it can be hot work and tiring.

I would encourage you to test your BG#s as often as your Dr recommends.

Also you might want to mention your neuropathy to your Dr. He might try Neurontin or some other prescription to deal with the sensitivity.

Blessings to you and yours
