Neuropathy and Diabetes

Posted on March 16, 2018

"Well, my diabetic neuropathy is on fire both my hand and feet feel like they are in a state like they are half way asleep. It's been this way on and off for the last 3 months it drives me nuts. But my blood sugars have been fine my highest blood sugar reading this week was before lunch on Tuesday." -A member of DiabetesTeam

On DiabetesTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with type 2 diabetes, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Neuropathy is one of the most discussed subjects.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about neuropathy:

How does one manage daily symptoms of diabetic neuropathy?

I have neuropathy in my feet, can anyone recommend something that helps ease the pain?

Any advice on what helps pain, burning, cramping & etc... in feet & hands?

Does anyone suffer from neuropathy? What are your treatment plans?

Here are some conversations about neuropathy:

One of those days I just have laid here in pain. I am so tired of my diabetes peripheral neuropathy.

I'm great today! No neuropathy pain in the last few days.

I fell yesterday due to my numb toes.
