    I have been a diabetic since 1991. As the disease has progressed from pills to injections, I have been unable to get a handle on diabetic "Dawn Syndrome".

At bedtime around 10:30PM, my sugar would be between 110 and 125. My last food intake was between 7:00 and 7:30 PM. Then I make a mixture of Gin (Beefeater) and yellow raisins. I took....

My original Dr never done an EMG on me so my new Dr sent me to the neurologist so she could know for sure what's wrong with me. Since 2014 I've been dealing with every pain associated with nuerapathy its gotten worse to the point....
