Re: Help needed please.
This doesn't sound like typical diabetic neuropathy. First of all, it started suddenly, started in the knees, it's migratory and doesn't stay in the same place all the time. Not sure what it could be.
Having said that, it's hard to determine just how well your blood sugars are controlled since you didn't tell us when you test. For example, if the morning AM fasting test is consistently around 5.9, that's not bad. And if the 10.8's are two hours after eating, well that's not terrific, but it's not totally horrible either. Do you ever get an A1c test? That's the test that measures your blood glucose over the previous 8-12 weeks. It's a much better indicator of how well controlled you've been.
Meanwhile, the best way to get your numbers down would be to minimize simple carbohydrates as much as possible. That means fewer white potatoes (sweet potatoes are better), less rice, white bread, pasta and sweets. More vegetables will help fill you up while keeping your carb intake lower.
I don't know what type of medication Diamicron is, but if it's an insulin-sensitizing medication, then possibly it's time to add another type of diabetes medication to the mix.
