I am diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2. The mystery is: if I eat low (almost no) carbs, my blood sugars are high and rising. If I eat high carbs (porridge and honey sandwiches), my blood sugars drop. I am quite thirsty in the afternoons. My feet are slightly numb and have been for years. My fingers tingle. I don't know whether I have diabetes or not. Is there an alternative?

You would need to be diagnosed by a health professional.
What you are describing could be insulin-resistance, where the high glucose levels caused by the carbohydrate stimulate a high insulin response, leading to the drop in blood glucose.
When was your last appointment and A1c done? What did your doctor say about the blood sugars going too high/low?
My most recent A1c was 107, last week. Having a talk with the Gp tomorrow. No-one has discussed my odd levels with me.
How many carbs. do you have for each meal/snack?
Please let us know what your doctor says when you see them tomorrow ( Monday).
