Feet burn with shoes on.

I have diabetes.
Why would my feet burn mainly when I wear shoes?
Is there a cure for this?

First question is how well are you controlled
Second question is do you have a peripheral neuropathy
Third question is have you seen a podiatrist
If you have answered not well, and yes and no then there is no cure only better management.
If you answered well, noand yes or no ,
then there may well be something we can do.
In both cases I advise you to please go to a podiatrist with a specific interest in diabetes get one by calling the South African Podiatry assn 0861 100 249
when you see the podiatrist ask them to check for a tarsal tunnel syndrome, or a skin reaction to your shoes

Visit a reflexologist. Beter circulation will help. Also do good breating excercise for good oxygen supply.Keep to low sugar intake and eat lots of fresh and raw vegatables and fruit Good luck.
