Has anyone experienced sore tongue with type II diabetes?  If so, what did you do for it?

I'm not sure what you mean by a sore tongue... Does it have sore spots on it or are you biting it? Inside the mouth, tongue and gum sores can be from a variety of things including reactions to acidic foods or a form of contact dermatitis of a mucus membrane from a food. They can be simple mouth irritations or may be caused by a virus. Usually most mouth sores heal rather quickly but if they become a persistent problem you should speak with your dentist or doctor.

They could be anything from an overgrowth of yeast to cancer of the tongue so I'd keep an eye on it. Wish I could be more helpful.

My tongue feels raw all over and it is "coated" with a whitish stuff. My blood work was fine two weeks ago.

F, are you diabetic?  I noticed you also posted this question in the Crohns forum.  A coated tongue can have many causes: thrush, sinus infection, general sickness like a cold, allergies, etc.  among several causes.  As far as I'm aware, this is not related to diabetes.  You need to see your doctor.

I do have Crohn's and I have a call into my doc so I'll let you know what's up later. Thanks for your replies!

My primary care doc believes I have "mouth, hand and foot" disease...usually only children get this but with an autoimmune disease adults can get it also...48 hours should tell for sure or not.

OMGosh! My daughter is babysitting for a 9 month old with this. It's a virus that just works its way thru your system and then leaves (usually after you have given it to some others devil) The nice thing is that you usually get some sort of immunity to it and never have to put up with it again.
