    Hi catlady. I'm new too can't seem to get how to do things .
    Being eighty odd things don't come too quickly..I had bad night before went to bed blood sugars four point two afraid to goto bed with it being so low. Got. Blood sugars up to ten point one then I legged it to bed. Do you ever get tingling in your hands . This k it maybe nerve damage. . When I have asked drs and nurses they don't seem to know. lathe set Frostie

    Frostie? Is the tingling related to your T2? Can't understand why Drs and nurses can't put light on your query

    Hi don't know why they don't take any notice i have read somewhere that's nerve damage
    The end of next month going to doc and see diabetic specialists may then get some answers
    I do think it relates to my type two. But at eighty odd no good worrying .sometimes I think they think diabetes are a nuisance but there again it's what they are for.
    Nice to hear from you. Frostie

    Seems to me that you're getting the hang of the techno stuff just fine - welcome to the forums @Frostie .
