I am more than glad to give my support. I would have given anything for some one to tell me there was hope for improvement. I already had complications when dx'd and no one offered any hope that there could be ANY improvement. All I was told was to strive for normal BG and see what might happen. I brought my A1c down from 12.3 to 5.6 in 3 1/2 months, which was too quick and caused my complications to get worse. It took about 6 months to see some real improvements, but things have kept moving in the right direction. At a glacier;s pace as I call it.
There is a study from Johns Hopkins that explains what is really going on with PN. They determined that it can take 2 years for the nerves to truly begin complete healing. I don't have the link any more, but I found it here at Tu or on Science Daily. It;s worth looking up though.
Hang in there, both of you. If I can be of any help let me know. I'm not on here every day, but I'll get r-mail alerts for messages.
