Thanks for posting your query.
Diabetes is a multi organ disease with involvement of almost all organs of body due to its complications.
Blood sugar both fasting and postprandial must be in controlled range.
Diabetes is due to progressive loss or destruction of beta cells in endocrinal part of pancreas.
In type I diabetes, beta cells in pancreas is almost destroyed with no production of insulin.
A patient with type I diabetes has to take insulin therapy for control of blood sugar.
There could also be possibility of diabetic neuropathy and you should also take epalrestat, methylcobalamin, and pregabalin/ gabapentin.
You should protect your legs from getting any type of injury.
Try to keep your sugar control.
Take care,
