Hi, I am a 30 year old female that has been a diabetic (juvenile) for about 25 years. I recently went to my doctor for a general visit and they decided to do a nerve test (my first one). The results were I had mild neuropathy (I don't have any pain b)my doc did not make a big deal about it (one of the reason I think that he didn't make a big deal is that my hemoglobin a1c is always under 6). He just said it is common for someone who had diabetes for so long to have mild neuropathy. What is your take on it? Does anyone have diabetes for that long and not have neuropathy? Is it common/normal? Please help me give me advice this really really bothers me..

Hi Laya,

Welcome to the Forum. I'll let the other very experienced Type 1 and Type 2s answer this question, but I wanted to know that though your HbA1c has always been below 6 how stable have your blood sugars been (in terms of variations lows and highs) ?

I ask this because I've read again and again that by very tightly controlling the deviation from the average a lot of these issues can be reversed..

There are many long term T1s here who should be coming online soon...

I do have deviation some days more than others--are you trying to say if I get even tighter control it can reverse the neuropathy?

Thanks for the replies, I actually have psoriasis, low in d-vitamin, diabetes, alopecia too. Recently I have been doing research on lchf diet...sounds like it could effect your cholesterol does anyone see that? My doctor mentioned to me to try alpha lipoic acid too..
