Hi and welcome to DF. Diabetes can be very frustrating. I have had it for 4 years and my control has been up and down. I lost all the weight I needed to and now am about 15 pounds below my goal weight. My bgs have gotten better but I still have to take the metformin to keep them near or below 100. I take the maximum amount of metformin. I also found there are certain foods I just have to avoid if I want to keep my bg in a good range. I had a little neuropathy when I was dx'd from several years of too high bgs. Most of it is gone, with the lower bgs. Some people also find taking the supplement Alpha Lipoic Acid, helps.
