    It might help to define "lowish carb".

    Bit vague I know. I really mean a deliberate reduction in carbs rather than calories.
    BTW you are one of the people I was hoping to hear from.

    That is excellent you obviously just had a diabetic blip (put it down to bad blood tests :)). Let me know if they work out the hands/feet issue as I seem to be suffering cold (and pain from the "cold") with my hands and feet when my levels are below 5.6 and been considering going back to the docs.

    I always used to have really hot feet all the time when my BG was not as controlled as it is now. I needed to be barefooted nearly all the time, even in winter wore open sandals outside. Feet get very cold now, especially when BG is particularly low normal. To such an extent that I wear woolly socks and boots yet still can't always get feet warm.. Not sure which I prefer, think it is cold.

    Just diet mate. I could probably get any HbA1c I want.
     
  7. Do you think that TITD could have been disdiagnosed in the first place? Or am I reading your post wrong?

    No I think he has just managed to sort it out so fast that he has probably not suffered any long term effects and is now working as he should and by the sounds of it better than his wife.

    Andrew have you had your B12 checked.
    I got the doc to do another B12 test. It came back at 128. Very low. I am getting my first weekly B12 shot today.
    I got a printout of it. Under clinical data it says neuropathy.
    Cholesterol is 3.7 HDL 2.0 so not all bad news

    Apparently I cant handle it anymore.

    The effects of the neuropathy and other side effects of very low b12 will probably be permanent. The first thing I noticed in February was just cold hands and feet which I put down to a change of diet at that time.
    But that was yesterday. Time to get on with it now.
    Have you had a B12 check?
