I'm afraid to say it but I'm afraid that I'm getting the start of neuropathy in feet. There is a slight tingling in the in the mornings now for the past 2 weeks.
I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to reverse this and what I should ask my doctor.
I've been working hard at getting my sugars down since i got here on juvenation 2 years ago and have finally gotten my a1c below 7, i'm afraid it is too late.
I'm also fighting off the tip of depression right now, I'm really unsure of where things are going and it is just nerve racking. My mom is 50 and just found out she has ovarian cancer, which is looking to be of a rare hereditary type and she may have some other problems that need to be addressed. I've been working hard at getting to the gym and keeping tight to my allergen free diet and it is looking like I'll also be cutting out gluten for my intestine's sake, I can't handle the sugar from and the constipation is awful. Even with cutting the calories I'm been gaining weight, about 5 lbs in 2 weeks since this has been going down. I feel awful, nerves, sad, slow, depressed, crying and just plain unsure as our health status is in question.
What should I do? Can I reverse the damage I did as a teen? My a1c never went above 8.6, but my a1c was about 7-8 for years. What should I ask my doctor? Ultimately I'm very fearful of what my near future holds and not to confident of what is ahead. I'm not sure I can do it.
