Nerve damage

Neuropathies, or problems of the nerves, are common in those with diabetes. If you have diabetes, you may suffer nerve damage in different parts of the body. Some people experience pain, numbness or tingling in the toes, feet, legs, fingers, hands and arms. Others have shrinking of muscles of the hands and feet, nausea, vaginal dryness, impotence, diarrhea and indigestion. Nerve problems can also occur in the organs inside the body. The poorer the blood glucose control, the higher the likelihood of developing diabetic neuropathy.

Regular monitoring can help you spot patterns to try to avoid high and low blood glucose, reduce complications of diabetes, and help control your diabetes.
