Hey Martina,

Welcome to the Forum.

I'm fairly new to Diabetes. Was diagnosed about 2 months back.

I am not on insulin but your insulin doses sound like a lot. How have your numbers been ? (A1Cs, fastings etc).

Are you managing your diabetes well ? What kind of a diet do you follow ?

Welcome again !

Tony

Hello and welcome back, Marti. Others here have been able to reduce neuropathy with tight control . . . how are your numbers running?

It's good to meet you - I hope you'll be visiting often!

Welcome back. Sounds like you are very insulin resistant with that much Lantus. Do you also take Metformin?
