Oct 4, 2018 · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

I have never been told what kind of nephropathy I have but it is terrible in my left foot and toes. There is some numbness in both feet. I take Lyrica and Tramadol twice a day. Yes, the nights are bad but the days are no walk in the park either. Some days are debilitating.

I’d say the average for a good tint is $300 to $500.

Additionally we down here in Arizona put window tinting on our cars so we don’t have to worry about the UV rays coming into our cars.

Hi Cheryl,

Thank you for sharing your journey. I've been diabetic for about 25 years and the kidney failure is due to the diabetes. I just completed my physical and hopefully will pass the committee tomorrow. I am very lucky to have a living donor who will start her physical soon. I currently am on a Medtronic CGM pump which helps keep my BS fairly under control. I'll keep you updated as I go through the process.

HI @sinjin
My BG's are not under control. My endo got me approved for me to get a Medtronic 670G insulin pump which automatically gives boluses to keep my bg's WNL. I have been on this pump for one week and just switched to Auto mode today. I'll let you know how it goes. I'll contact @johnbiship.

Hello everyone,

I am new to this group. I am currently in the final stages of my physical for Chronic Kidney Disease. I am planning to get a kidney transplant. I am a type 2 diabetic since 1993. I've been treated for neuropathy for about five years. I take Lyrica and Tramadol for the pain mainly in my left leg and foot. When it flairs up it is debilitating. They tell me it is caused by diabetes. It is treated by my endocrinologist who I see every three months. I am hoping to get information from members of this group by sharing how they are being treated for all their complications.

I wear a gold bracelet with insulin diabetic inscribed on it and it has the international insignia on it. I also have in my wallet a card that says I am on an insulin pump. You never know when wearing it could save my life.
