I first flunked a neuropathy screening on my feet in 2009, which prompted me to reduce blood sugar testing on my toes, and I stopped testing on my toes altogether in 2010 when I started using Dexcom and reduced the total number of blood sugar tests that I was doing.
As it was three years from diabetes diagnosis to the first suggestion that I had neuropathy, it was three years from the suggestion of neuropathy to the suggestion that I had neuropathy not just in a foot, but in all four limbs.
And now I wonder- my hands are being medicated. I have an NSAID goop on them. Should I go back to checking blood sugar on my toes? I mean... if I have neuropathy in my hands as well as feet, why favor the feet?
