Pre Diabetes
grandmacjt posted:
Early this year i was diagnosed with Pre diabetes, i was suprised because i an an active person and because my husband is type 2 Diabetic i always try to eat right etc; After Easter i turned over a new leaf , I began walking almost a mile or 2 a day, and went on a low carb diet. I lost some weight, very slow but also toned up. I am 62, weighed in at 181, mostly in the belly area. I am bicycling the 2 miles now when i can, i am still very active. For a few years now when i drive my hands get tingly and sometimes numb, also happens when i am bicycling. The last 2 or 3 toes on my left foot are also numb, i always thought that could be from a spinal problem. Ive had the toe problem well over 10 years now. I have curvature of the spine since i was 15 so i do have back problems. Could the numbness be nerapothy already?? or what.

You are heading in the right direction, don't think it is neuropathy yet, but that is really a question for your Dr. Keep up on the exercise, and the weight loss. Control of your starches, which are your heavy carb loaders will help to balance out your numbers. You really don't want to go the road that many of us have and ignore this disease. Even with high blood sugars in the normal ranges you are at risk. Recent studies have shown that high sugars are a possible cause of shrinking of the brain and loss of cognitive skills. So keep on the road, cut the white starches and limit the brown and orange. Good luck! Oh yes, read the posts of Dr. Dansinger, they should help quite a bit.
