Hello and Welcome to 'Ask a Doctor'
I have reviewed your query regarding your symptoms and the question of what do they indicate.
The symptoms you describe are typical of the ravages uncontrolled high blood sugar and blood pressure have on your body, nerves, autonomic nervous system and other organs. The kidneys are not receiving adequate blood flow, the neuropathy will affect balance, coordination and tremors and any excess weight typically associated with type 2 diabetes
will worsen sleep apnea
My advice to you is to get your blood sugar under control through a carbohydrate/calorie controlled diet with an emphasis on water soluble fibers and low glycemic load carbohydrates. You may wish to speak to a Registered Dietitian about setting up a diet plan
In addition, the hypertension
can be helped with a sodium diet with added potassium if medications do not contraindicate. Some blood pressure medications require potassium monitoring. A dietitian can also assist you with these changes.
Good blood sugar and hypertension control will assist you in regaining balance and coordination while slowing down any nerve damage
that may be occurring.
I hope I have answered your query.
