So I am new on this forum, and fairly recently diagnosed as LADA. On Tresiba and Metformin. Quite a bit of foot neuropathy. Still learning about everything.
My personal complication is cold, cold shins. I’m still trying to determine if they get cold when I’m low, when I drop, or when I spike or am high.
Recently we installed a hand shower in the bath tub so I can shower my shins with warm water – without filling the tub or taking a full bath. This has been really helpful.
But what I love even more are my Supergirl Socks!
These are my old knee-high socks from the seventies, which I wore in grade school. Orlon or some blend, and deep but bright red. I found them at my mother’s house recently. Like most depression-era survivors, she saves everything!
I thought about Jane Fonda leg warmers, but I remember they always used to fall down to your ankles when wearing them.
But my Supergirl Socks stay up, keep my shins warm, and I don’t have to get wet to gain comfort.
What are your personal complications? What do you do to ease them?
I would love to hear from anybody about what you each go thru.
