    I had problems with my feet - numbness, tingling, feeling like I had a stone under the ball of my foot, warm water felt boiling hot, etc. I didn't realise quite how bad they'd become until I achieved good BG control and the feeling started coming back. It was quite unpleasant at times. Over the past three years there's been a big improvement so that now they feel almost normal, except for occasional tingling right at the tips of my toes.

    Yes I have too.

    Could I refer to the thread called "help in dealing with Neuropathy?"

    There is a lot of really good stuff on there which might help you too.

    I had numbness in my leg which may have been my unstabilized hypothyroidism. But it's improved a lot since my BG is down, thanks to having high fibre with every meal. I've read elsewhere that neuropathy can be reversed.

    In my case, tight control of blood glucose levels, Alpha Lipoic Acid, methyl Cobolamine and Benfotiamin seem to be helping me.

    Again though, take time to check out Omnipod and Winnie53s contributions to "help in dealing with Neuropathy"
