The whole Diabetes and Crohnes thing really really stinks! I feel for ya lots! Going through the same thing all the time. I remember when I was first diagnosed and you reached out to me. Made me feel like there was somebody else dealing with both:) Fortunatley, my numbers aren't super high as of yet..so when Crohns is bad I just bail on the Diabetes diet...
Just went over all of this with my nutritionist blah blah...Crohns has been icky latley so I've got bad Diabetes numbers:( and right now we are on a wait and see thing for the next month before we start meds...yuck!
I have already decided that if they get bad enough...I'm going for a pump! Have you thought about it? Then you don't have to worry about needles and it just automatically kicks in what you need. I have friends who have done it and it's so much easier...who gives a flip at this point..right! If you feel better and it frees up some of your life....Do It!!! So much better than sitting around worrying about numbers,numbers,numbers! Having the numbness like you do is a sign to me that your damaging tissue...and well WE need you here! :)
