On a 3 hr. gtt, at hour 2 my urine glucose level was 500. The test showed that I have type 2 Diabetes. I have at least a 7 yr. history of neuropathy. In that time Neurontin has been increased to 3600 mg. I also have extreme fatigue, sore joints and muscles, serious cognitive issues (slowing in eeg), my head swims, I have a numb, but still painful feeling on the left side in the middle of my back, and my father died with kidney failure. I have more testing scheduled with a neurologists, but I am growing more concerned the more I read about glucose in the kidneys that i might need to see a nephrologist. I need a professional opinion.

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
