It's hard to tell. I had different doctors giving different diagnosis results too. Some said I needed insulin!. I went online to check out reliable reading materials and one of it was "INSULIN THERAPY - INJECT OR REJECT: DO YOU REALLY NEED INSULIN?" Very informative and helpful!
I was terrified when I knew that I had to go for the insulin treatment and I had to read more to know what's happening.
Nuropothy. Sorry, not sure I spelled it correctly, but it starts in your toes and feet. Need good fitting shoes, get rid of high heals, they will make it worse! The good news is you found out and doing great at making changes in your life. I, unfortunately waited too long, in denial, and have lost a lot of feeling in my feet. I now get sharp pains in my legs and finger tips. You are doing a great job, and very wise to take charge and a good direction! Better early, and getting educated too! May try diabetic socks to help with your circulation. Massage your legs, get that blood flowing and cut out bad fats, bad carbs, and processed foods. A long time ago, a friend of mine told me to cut out all sugar, but I couldn't accept my condition, sooo I didn't do great like you... I have to live with my choices, but I now am empowered with making good choices. Better late than never. But you, you should receive a badge of honor to take such wonderful steps to take such great care, and loving yourself healthy!! You are worth it my friend... :)
