Hi guys. My mother has been treated for T2 for the past 15 years or so, and her control has, alas, not been best. My increased awareness about diabetes, following my daughter's dx as a T1 two years ago, has helped me guide her to controlling her diabetes more effectively. I am afraid my mom is experiencing complications with legs - diabetic neuropathy, which is making it very painful to walk. Her doc here in Greece advised her to walk a lot, quit smoking and lose weight (which has been my advice to het over the past 30 years!) but did to prescribe something that would alleviate the leg pain when she walks. So it is a bit of a catch-22 situation, she cannot walk to improve the condition of her legs because of the pain. What is the first-line treatment for pain caused by diabetic neuropathy in the legs in the US? I would really appreciate any practical advice you could offer in this regard. Thanks!
