Dear Mariam
If you are a type 1 diabetic using insulin, then it is essential that you consult your medical doctor if you have any symptoms such as the burning sensation in your foot and the discomfort in your leg. Patients with diabetes can develop so-called neuropathy or poor circulation in various parts of the body, esp the legs and feet. Please see your medical dr ASAP who will be able to prescribe treatment for this kind of condition.
Best regards

I am a type 1 diabetic (insulin dependent) and overweight. I want to loose weight but am hungry all the time. Are there any products I can use to help with weight loss which will not be a danger to my condition.
