    Hi Mossy77, Just been reading through the thread, seems you had a bit of a raw deal.

    Have you tested you sugars recently what are they at the moment.

    Hi I think I have a little neuropathy in my feet, sometimes it's painful to walk on the ball of my feet, but minor.

    When I was diagnosed I had a lot of tingling in my arms and legs in particular at night, but all that has subsided now.

    Although you say you sugars are good, from what I have read testing 2 a day will never tell you what they are, as you have to test the food your having.
    Example my sugars are very good my recent HbA1c is down to 41 from 46. BUT tonight had a Pitta Bread only 1/2, it spiked me to 9.3mmol/L.

    I personally think you need to get a handle on your sugars buy regular testing, I have seen that it may be difficult for you to afford the test strips but what everyone is saying here is it's about at the most £6.95 for 50 strips if you get the SD CODE FREE they would last you a week, but once you have tested certain combinations of food you don't need to test any more, only when you are having something different, I don't test Breakfast or Dinner anymore as they are always similar.

    The last thing is you have to get some exercise, walking briskly if possibly will make you muscles suck the sugars out of the blood, will help your circulation and in turn have a major impact on improving you neuropathy.

    It is possible as many are doing it on here to get the numbers consistently down, I genuinely believe you need to be testing the food your eating and exercising.

    Hi Mossy77, I think you have your answer. But I am a bit confused, what are you doing to be missing all these meals and only getting a few hours sleep, because I thought you had lost your job. If your Working hours like that it will not help your diabetes nor missing the meals. It would be madness after what you have described what had happened to your brothers that you are not taking more care of yourself by getting into a routine. You have to reassess lifestyle so that you can get some control.

    Been out sorry

    Hi Mossy77, What can I say you, have to think of yourself, I'm not saying you have to stop sorting out your grand kids but after that it should all be about you.
    There is no point looking for elsewhere for answers, when you hold all the cards. You have the answer, regular meals, testing, testing, testing. and get the rest that you should get with some exercise, there ain't any other way out of this situation if you want to improve, you cannot shortcut anything, it's up to you...............! It's your choice.......?
