Exercise and diabetes

I have diabetes therefore I make sure I go to gym every day (cardio)
Why do my legs ache and my feet burn after exercise?

Is there a logical reason for this?

Hallo Anon
Diabetes can cause peripheral neuropathy which causes damage to the nerves - this is the most probable cause
