It is scary how few people in the medical establishment know (or seem to care) about taking care of diabetics like us, Georgia. Not just “treating” us. When I had my colonoscopy, if I had followed my prep instructions as they were given (don’t eat solid food, but take my medications as usual) I would have been in an awful state. I found out a long time ago that nobody takes care of my diabetes but me.

And yes, the tingles/pin-pricks/stabbing needles of neuropathy tend to focus one’s attention, eh? Good on you for getting your sugars under control, and good luck on staying on that path.
