Hi, I found out about 2 years ago that I am type 2. I initially went to the doctor as I had pins & needles in my right foot, plus numbness. The numbness is still there, although slight. Is it worth going back to my doctor?

Sorry to hear about this

How good is the control of your diabetes ?

What medicines are you taking currently ?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Metformin, 2 tablets am and pm. I also take a blood pressure tablet in the morning and a statin in the evening.

And what about the control of your diabetes ?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Not sure what you mean by control, I have blood & urine tests/checks with my doctor.

I am just saying that with treatment your blood glucose is under control or not ?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I am not sure! I do not do any other treatment apart from check my blood pressure.

Thanks for the details

I think you need to monitor the blood glucose

If your blood glucose is fine then there is nothing to worry about

Your symptoms can also be treated with Gabapentin

There is nothing to worry in it
