How did you guys go about telling your Dr about foot nerve damage. I have extreme pain/burning just after 10-15mins of walking and I feel my feel tingly with pins n needles. I'm pretty young and I'm afraid my Dr won't take me seriously because I am out of shape as well. Does anyone else have this problem, what helps you?
I have been experience numbness in my feet when I go out for a walk. I have tried compression socks and that seems to alleviate some of the issues. Also use massage gun on calves as well as compression treatments. Anyone have any suggestions to alleviate the numbness or is this something I need to learn to live with due to type 2 diagnosis?
Apart from my medication, food and drink, what else should I take with me when myself and my fiance go and visit his family in just over a week as we're going to visit my fiancé's family on the 7th of June and I'm just wondering if I need to take anything else just to be on the safe side as I would rather be safe than sorry.

Has been just over a week since I was diagnosed with diabetes and working on what my new normal is now.
why is being a diabetic so expensive
Dont really know what I'm.going to get out of this bit if anyone can give me a bit of incentive to lose some weight and get my diabetes and arthritis under control I'm up for it! I've recently made a big change in my life after working in retail for 24 years, have just changed jobs to something totally different!
my blood sugar has been terrible. I am on byetta and invokana. my dr wants to save long term and short term insulin as last resort because she said it will hinder weight loss. taking both meds and even fasting my blood sugars are still high. running in the 200s and thats no food for 48 hrs. any suggestions?
Today I finally got my shopping done. I got a lot of fresh fruits and veggies and preped them into freezer bags so they are quick and easy to use. I got fish, eggs, beans and nuts so i can lower my inflammationand cholesterol. I made up the lentils into freezer bags as well. I did not buy anything I shouldn't eat. i was proud and excited so I made a no sugar added blueberry pie and a cocoa mix eventhough I was in a lot of pain. Bending over to reach things at the store really caused a lot of pain in the back of my neck and shoulder. More than I mentally prepared for. The cutting of fruits and veggies have my hands and wrists aching. I am feeling imaginary spiders crawling up my legs. I not longer have covid-19 but I still can't taste anything so my pie was obviously loved by others but I didn't get to enjoy it myself. I'm feeling depressed more and more because I miss my sense of taste. is there something that will help get my taste back?
I don't really know what to post about but I would like to learn things that could be really helpful to my conditions as someone who has recently learned that they're diabetic.
Can someone explain to me my doctor tells me I’m anemic what does that mean? Does that make you tired?

Starting Trulicity tomorrow. Not sure what to expect? What's your experience, the good the bad the ugly?
I really want to stop taking so many prescriptions, sleep longer hours and have energy. You get the idea. I love doing crafts, baking, being mobile for my grandchildren and taking trips with my husband. Unfortunately, I'm barely able to get out of bed most days. I need encouragement and understanding of my situation.
