Hello - Thank you for this forum. I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes approximately one year ago. It was diagnosed through a glucose tolerance test. I am 5'3" and 145 lbs. (20 pounds lighter than my weight at diagnosis). My AIC is below 6.0 and I manage my blood sugar with diet and exercise. I am very active - weight lifting and running. What has me confused is the number of number of neuropathies I seem to be suffering from. Yesterday they told me my bladder muscle is not functioning properly. I am retaining at an 80% level. They are talking about surgery and/or possibly self-catherization. My gall bladder has also been removed although I didn't fell any pain until it had turned into peritonitis. I also suffer from Tarsal tunnel syndrome and other neuropathies that affect my hands and feet. Itching mostly but also numbness. The last two fingers on my left hand are starting to curl. I don't understand why I'm having these issues if my blood sugar was never really that bad and is under control now. Is this normal or should I be having my doctors check for other causes? Thanks for whatever insight you can provide.
