It doesn't make sense

I'm so confused.

I have twice been through a 5 hour diabetes test. Both came back that I WAS a diabetic. The tests were done about 11 years apart
I lost 30lbs. and was able to come off the metformin. My A1C has been in the 5.6 area for several years now.
At this point I have lost more that 50lbs.
I have Gastro Paresis. In English that means that my stomach is completely paralyzed, It doesn't move and help in digestion. Commonly caused by untreated diabetes.
That leads to a whole mess of problems. We will discuss that later..
Now I have diabetic neuropathy. My legs/feet are numb and hurting.
As are my fingers. Commonly caused by untreated diabetes
I seem to continue to get new systems from diabetes, but my sugar is has been perfectly normal perfectly for years.

It doesn't make since

What's up?

The important thing, at this point is, are you doctors "confused" as to to what needs to be done at this point and have they clearly communicated what you need to do, as well? Are you able to take your prescribed medications, daily, exercise, daily, and eat foods that won't cause further harm to your body?

There's absolutely no point in discussing what caused you to be in the state you're in because nothing anyone says will change your mind, anyway. So, do you have any questions that can help you, right now, at this moment?
