Hi everyone, about 2 years ago I was diagnois as type 2 diabetic. I thought i had it under control through diet & excerise, then I developed crohns and everthing went bonkers. Now most things diabetes can eat crohns patients can't. I just found out i have diabetic nuerophy in my feet. What can i do? If i get gluclose level ok Crohns flairs up. Now what. I have been on the crohns site for year or so but this is my first time here. I am sure i will get to be a reqular.

Hi wrm! I am type 2 also of 29 years. I am having problems with GERD (reflux) and it has sent my FMS over the top. My sugar has remained very good though. I also have to be on a GERD diet.

I have diabetic neuropathy in my feet. The main thing to do is to try to keep your sugar as close to normal as possible. Because of your crohn's, that is really going to be hard.

You just do the best you can just like the rest of us do with multiple illnesses/conditions. It gets really hard. I've gotten to the point where I've been on this Nexium for GERD for 4 months and I'm still having problems. So, I'm going to quit it tonight and see how I do. I'm going back on Pepcid AC for acid as I am having a lot of side effects from Nexium.

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck. What meds are you taking for the crohn's?

Hugs,
Faye

Hi, WRM, Welcome!

My gastro problems aren't Crohns or GERD, but a permanent colostomy resulting from rectal cancer.  I did wonderfully well with my type 2 diabetes on low carb.  You and Cats are right - foods are totally incompatible.  Diabetes wants salad, veggies, meat - ostomy wants white bread and pasta.  What a disaster.  Let me know if you get it figured out ...

Neurontin for neuropathy, Glucophage for diabetes.   :-)

Hi everyone, I am thirty and have type 1 diabetes since age 13. I now have Retinopathy in the right eye with two operations. The pressure is so bad behind the eye that total darkness and ice packs is all that is left for me to use. Is there anyone out there that can give good advice? Thanks Trini.

Hi there Trini,

First of all ,how's your left eye function?Has it been tested?If not get it tested pronto!

Secondly,a check-up of your kidney function is a must.

Thirdly,get a neurological examination of your lower limbs done!

Blood pressure readings in the sitting and lying down positions will give valuable info'about the autonomic nerves.
Last,but not least,how's your blood sugar control?Tight control may prevent further damage to the above mentioned.

Hi there,
Thank you so much for this important info.
The left eye is bad, and is waiting for the right eye to heal before surgery can be done. I will have my kidneys check soon. also a neurological exam. Blood sugar fluxuates. Again I am thankful.
