Default Diabetic nurapathy! Help!

Hello! I am a type 1 diabetic. And I am having beginning sighns of diabetic nurapathy. I am freaking out! My a1c has been out of control for the past 3 years highest was like a 10! And I have finally started taking care of my diabeties I am at about a 7.7 slowly going down ☺ if you don't mind me asking does nurapathy get better once you start taking care of your diabeties? I have also heard that lowering your A1c can be a painful process because the nerves are being repaired is this true? And do you have any tips on like dieting? I'm trying to get my a1c down in the 7.0 range! I saw a nurologyst a few days ago and he said i had very mild nurapathy! But my feet still feel like I have a sock over them all the time and mild pain😭 Im so scared I have already messed up! But I am willing to try to get ahold of this horrible disease I am only 19 so I hope this goes away! Any tips are greatly appreciated!

I haven't had any neuropathy so I can't speak from experience, but I have heard others say they have slowed/stopped/reversed neuropathy by getting good control of their BG. Those that spoke of success say they have had to keep their BG at or below 120 mg/dL at all times. That would be getting your A1c down to 5.5-5.6.

Maybe someone who has been successful will post and give you more tips on how they managed. Until then, if you haven't already, you might check out Dr. Richard Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. He is a Type 1 doctor in his 70s that recommends a low carb diet to minimize insulin needed to control your BG and reduces the high and low BG swings induced from misjudging how much insulin you need. Some of the book can be read online at the link given. Chapter 7, the law of small numbers.

Surely the pain of healing has to be better than the pain of getting worse. I've heard neuropathy can be quite painful but there are some pain medications that can help make it bearable.

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.
a1c 8.8 (8/2011) 5.4 (8/2012) 5.9 (2/2015) 5.6 (10/2015) 5.3 (2/2016) 5.7 (11/2016)
