Thanks Doris for welcoming me to this group. I hope to learn more about my pre-diabetic condition and how to deal with it. I am keeping my sugar in check since I started exercising and watching what I eat however I am having problems with nerve pain in my feet. My doctor gave me neurotin and it seems to help but the side effects ..especially dry mouth ... is a problem. Do you know of any other meds I could take to help with this pain without all the side effect problems I am having?
Hi Doris, thank you for the warm welcome. I can't believe how friendly this community is! I'm so glad I joined! I also have type 1 LADA and I'm getting my first pump next week. I got lots of information here. So helpful!
