    Hi everyone,

    I was diagnosed type 2 diabetic today. I have a long going issue with poor circulation in me legs and vericose veins. Is there a need to be more cautious here or you reckon I'll be okay as long as I got my bg under control

    Hello and welcome the forum @Parm_D

    Keeping your bg levels in range is key to managing your poor circulation and varicose veins, unfortunately running high causes weakening of the blood vessels, so keeping this in check will be beneficial to your health, it's also good you have been diagnosed as you can at least now keep a careful eye on this, left undiagnosed then it would of allowed damage to occur.
