Keep speaking with your doctor, and ask for more information.
I am newly diagnosed, T1, but I was undiagnosed and actively diabetic several years prior. My a1c at diagnosis was 15.9, so my BGs were very out of control for an extended period of time. With insulin, and low carb diet and exercise, my six month a1c was down to 5.3.
But the years out of control is contributing to the continuing neuropathy.
I have heard that truly normalizing the BG will lessen, or reduce it. Hasn't happened yet for me. I refuse to use meds, but I have occasionally tried electrical stimulation on the bottoms of my feet. It helps for the evening.
The thing is, even though my a1c is greatly improved, my feet are telling me otherwise. So I am still seeking answers for myself.
And as both T1 and T2 are progressive conditions, I am always curious about what I am experiencing, and what others are too.
All I can say, is, if you don't get the answers you need -- ask it a different way, or ask it of another person: a specialist or CDE, if you do not have one yet.
And the people of this forum are a great resource. And fun to converse with.
Good luck tomorrow!
