It has been six months since my diagnosis and I have my ac down to 5.1 which is great. I still think I'm having too many fluctuations though, so I'm working on that...
It has been a whirlwind the past few weeks with my father's illness, one of my kitties suddenly passing away and Sandy...
Overall I feel better and I think I'm staring to adjust a bit more to everything but I seem to be having a lot of tingling and cramping in my legs and more joint pain. I'm wondering if this could be due to diabetes or if it is related to the blood clot and damage in my blood vessels, or to nerve damage from the past. I have had tingling and pins and needles on and off for years. I have been drinking wine with dinner and it gets worse when I do that... could this be related? I started getting numbness in my face years ago whenever I drank alcohol and it got worse after my first neck injury.
Another side effect I have had since being put on insulin and treated for dka was that my vision went totally blurry, although it has improved greatly it is not back to normal yet, and it still changes a lot with my bg fluctuations it seems. I use reading glasses of different strengths. I plan to go to a different opthamologist soon when I have some time. I saw a retinologist who said there is no damage there that he can see.
