I have difficulty to understand the T2 because at the same time I am being told "Do not worry everything is fine as long as you eat right and control your sugars" and at same time I am being told to worry about my legs an that any small cut in my leg will cause them to rot away and to be amputated. I know the sugar levels in the blood damage nerves and the small nerves in feet are the first to go. And was it that the sugar also damages blood vessels and hinders blood flow ? Or was it that the sugar damages the kidney causing protein leak into urine and lack of protein in blood causes the nerve damage ? 1) So is T2 still doing damage even if it was well treated and controlled ? 2) Or is it that even with the perfect care changes in blood sugar levels will cause gradual irreparable damages that accumulate over the time. 3) Or is it that the risk of lapses in control over the years in day to day life make lapses in treatment such a high probability that make the probability of complications high enough to valid constant vigilance of feet ?
