Feet & legs

Hi all

I was diagnosed type 2 a few months back now, Only went to the doctors because my left leg and foot was going numb, Seen my dietician the other week and she told me my numbness in my leg and foot (which has now gone to my other leg and foot) will get back to normal when my sugar levels come down.

Is this true? My legs seem more numb than ever !!

The only reason i ask is my liver consultant told me that this isn't true? and has booked me to see a specialist in my local hospital.

Welcome Jason . . . there are no guarantees, as Agitater says. But if you're diligent about controlling your blood sugars - making whatever lifestyle changes are deemed necessary and doing it quickly - a lot of the side effects of diabetes can be reduced. If your sugars have been really high and been that way for a long time before your diagnosis, it may lessen the chances for full reduction, but the sooner you get your levels stabilized at a safe low level, the better the odds.
