So, I’ll definitely be going to the doctor(s) in the coming week now that I’m back in town after Spring travel season, but I’ve got some strange things going on. Specifically, I’m experiencing what I’m absolutely positive is peripheral neuropathy in one of my feet. I had mild neuropathy in one foot before diagnosis, and it reduced in severity and then went away within a month or so of normalizing my blood sugar.
But, a few years later, and with normal to high-normal BG and A1cs, it’s back! My last four A1cs have been 4.6%, 4.8%, 4.8%, and 5.2% (most recent), and I haven’t had a postprandial BG over 140 mg/dL by glucometer in almost a year. My fasting BGs have been steadily creeping higher over the last year or so, from mid 80s to 105-115 mg/dL in the last few months, but it doesn’t seem high enough to start causing neuropathy.
So, not looking for a diagnosis or anything (clearly); mostly just ranting (since it’s caught me off-guard). Anyone else been surprised by complications while maintaining relatively low or normal BGs? And is there anything to do about neuropathy other than regularly checking for wounds (I definitely have the numbness variety) and trying to lower eBG? I suppose I’ll start hitting the ultra-low carb thing to try to get back into the 80s again ;/
