Default Numbness and Tingling of Toes

Can numbness and tingling of toes symptom be reversed by normalizing blood sugars? It is a scary feeling.

It normally does either reverse or get much better.

I had numbness and tingling before I got use to normal blood glucose levels like 90mg/dl 1-2 hors after eating, but after a few month, it has gotten much better.

The numbness and tingling in my toes is so much better now that I am keeping my BS under 120 almost all the time. When my BS was out of control, my lower legs were tingling- that was scary! I am a real devotee of the LCHF diet-changed my life!

It was the occasional numb-tingle feeling that prompted me to see a doctor, first time in at least 10 years that wasn't in an Emergency Room. (Fortunately, my mom's doctor was willing to take me on as a new patient.) So far, nothing has changed, but then it's been less than two weeks since the diagnosis... I am hoping that it eventually goes away.

Mine almost vanished with better BGs. I will get the occasional recurrence -- usually after I've done something shtoopid like eat the wrong things, or sit too long in one position. Overall, all of my numbness and tingling issues have definitely improved.
