where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I've been having a lot of swelling on my legs, ankles & feet lately.. Also on my hands, specially in the mornings. I do have a desk job so I am not very active. My sugars have been fluctuating. Any ideas?

The swelling in your extremities is due to the erratic blood sugars. Possibly caused by Avandia if you take that. You may need to wear compression stockings, but of course consult your PHD first.

I'm currently on Invokana & I take apidra.. I'm thinking the invokana since I'm new to it.. I'll try the compression socks, I heard they help. Thanx for the advice!

Elevate your legs whenever possible too. Good luck
