I have been on the boards for a couple of months now. What a great group of people! Thanks for all of your help. I was diagnosed in April. I had been in the mid range of pre-diabetic for a few years right around 6.0% a1c. After a very stressful time period, I was diagnosed in April at 8.5%. I couldn't believe it. I estimate I was at diabetic levels for less than a year based on previous tests. I spent a couple of days feeling sorry for myself, but then went to work on low carb diet. Lost 20 pounds. After 6 weeks, I had dropped my a1c to 6.5%. I was feeling better about things. However, I started having burning pains in both feet, and sometimes quick shooting pains. Hands started tingling now and then. Everything just seemed to get a lot more sensitive all the sudden. I have never noticed any numbness. I cut my foot a couple weeks ago. It healed quickly and normally. I just don't get it. I didn't have any symptoms at diagnosis. Only started after bringing levels down. I am working to get them down further. I hope this isn't neuropathy. If it is, is there a chance it can resolve? Is it any indicator of future problems? Trying to keep focused on getting levels down. My meter readings are now consistently in non-diabetic ranges. Sorry for the rant. Just feeling a little frustrated today.
