"I don't know any of the answers you are asking"
Then you need to get a BG tester and find out what your pre meal BG is and your 1 hour and 2 hour post meal BG and what your fasting BG is and what your BG is when you have "neropathy".

We would love to help but you gota give us some info.

saying "feels like neropathy" is no help.
VeeJay, I think mbuster gave me the right direction if I understood him correctly. I read that a false hypo is when your bs has been used to being high and then when it begins falling like during the night you may feel like your having a hypo. But with me it is burning in the legs. I could be way off base since neuopathy is not a sign of a hypo. The reason I haven't taken my blood sugar 1hr and then 2 hr after each meal for ten days is I would run out of strips before being able to get more. Sam

The sudden drop can cause the feeling of symptoms of hypoglycemia, even if the lowest numbers you find when you test are way above true hypo numbers. The best way to stop this is to stop the BG swings and that is best done with lowering what causes it to go up and it may be necessary to reduce any medication that creates uncontrolled insulin production.

With other medical complications to deal with, I would definitely try to document as much information as I could about what was happening to me and lay it out for my doctor or PA to see and seek their advise. I am assuming your heart doctor and your regular doctor are in sync with what the other is doing.
I am giving up! I walked twice for 15 minutes at a slow pace, rested 15 minutes, then again. I have urinated four times this morning. I couldn't wait to check it at noon. I did and it was 236. I just don't understand and of course no one on here does. Thanks for the help. If you only knew the hell I have been though in my lifetime. No one can say I don't try for I do.

You don't need to give up, you need to lower your BG.

You understand correctly that false hypos can happen when your BG is lower than what your body is used to. You need to lower your BG so that your body is no longer use to it being high.

Yes I got your reply but it was this evening before I got it. I work rotating shift work and have been on graveyard shift. I slept most of the day.

I cannot stress enough that high blood glucose is causing damage if you let it continue to be high. Even if you feel good when it is high.

Diabetes is very complicated and the only thing everyone with it has in common is the loss of our natural ability to regulate our BG. There can be many single causes for the reason that happens and many times there are multiple causes, not to mention other diseases that directly or indirectly impact things. There is no simple 'one size fits all' answer. Reducing carbs alone to lower BG is a step in the right direction, but is not always enough for everyone. With anyone having other issues, it is important to discuss things with your medical team.

I can't see my doctor until December. I intend to talk to him then. I have the PA and both he and my neice keep saying I am an unusual diabetic because I am thin, while most are larger. In other words I am atypical. My dad died at 48 of a heart attack right in front of me. I have afib and I know my arteries aren't the best. Eight years ago I have one artery 59% blocked. It isn't because they don't care, it is because they have to keep more patients to make a living. To many patients doesn't give them time. The PA is very intelligent, but I think he has given up on me. Meaning he doesn't know what else to do. He also says my numbers aren't bad enough for insulin. mbuster, I want to thank you, VeeJay, and the others that having given me advice. I truly appreciate your time and your input. I truly do. Blood Sugar 101 will be her next week. But, I know what you are saying about the drop in bs casueing the neuropahty is exactly right. It all makes sense. Sam
