Md & Diabetes

Hi..Newbie here!! Got a couple of questions I hope some of you out there can help me with
I was diagnosed with MD in Jan of this yr & am still in the process of finding out the type I have...while in the process I have also been diagnosed with type II diabetes. Well because of the muscle loss in my arms & legs exercise can be very hard & painful, do any of you have some things you do to keep your diabetes in check??

Also what types of meds are you on for your MD, is there medications that can slow the progression or help with the muscle pains? My regular Dr gives me 5mg pain pills that help for a couple hours of the day & sometimes I feel normal but when I don't take them it seems like everything is stiff and my body feels like I've been through an excruciating workout.

Anyhoo...any advice you can give would be wonderful!!
