Diabetes or just fatigue?

Hi Doc
My 18yr olf daughter complains that her big toes have been numb for a few days and that it' s sore. She' s also been complaining about cramps in her legs. Could this be diabetes?

Dear Ash
Not necessarily although diabetes can give these symptoms - let your GP rather test her blood to be safe and look at her feet, maybe there is something else wrong like a pinched nerve?
