Neuropathy: I agree with dr. Liu. You most likely has neuropathy. Your blood sugar is still very high and you are on very low dose treatment regimen. It is a good idea to see your doctor again to see if you can go up on your dose or adjust your regimen. Controlling blood sugar is one way to prevent the neuropathy from getting worst. Good luck.
