Suikersiekte geen inspuitings tipe

My voetsole brand met tye baie en steek soos spelde maar hulle
lyk heeltemal normaal en soms n bietjie rooi, maar die vel op my kuite
is baie droog en juk en seertjies wil nie gesond word nie.

Dear Leon de Beer
Your symptoms are compatible with diabetic neuropathy, which is nerve damage secondary to high blood sugars over time. Treatment would consist of controlling blood sugars, in case there is temporary dysfunction. If still persisting, then there are medical treatments which are available, and can be got on prescription from your doctor. These tablets which work on the nerves can reduce pain by up to 50%. I suggest seeing your doctor to make sure your glucose levels are fine, and if so
then to look at trying medication.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
