Anyone have swollen, achy joints? I woke up to swollen fingers and hands yesterday. because the doctor does not want to listen to my symptoms. And I don't seem to have normal systems.

Sounds like you might have early symptoms of arthritis**** you may need a course of anti-inflammatories. Could I suggest that if your doctor is refusing to listen then you find one who will :)
****do you have high blood pressure? If you do it could be that. But like****said it could be arthritis as well. If your doctor does not want to listen the it is time to find someone who will.

My hands are sometimes swollen in the mornings. Has your vision changed recently? If so, get your urine tested for proteins because the eyes and kidneys have small blood vessels so might be related.

My ankles tend to swell, so I got my podiatrist to write script for suppression socks and they help tremendously.
Sounds like your body is retaining fluid. Try a dyretic.

I usually wake up with a swollen hand. Sometimes I can't wear my wedding ring. 😔
Sounds like you need a new doctor...

My son was recently diagnosed (2 weeks ago) with T1D... He is 11 and is currently the only child in his K-8 elementary school... Any words of wisdom for a new dad with a son with T1D? Other than, just treat him like you would if he didn't have T1D...
