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
