From Minnesota, USA:

I am a senior citizen who has typeá2 diabetes and is experiencing redness on my feet now. What should I expect?


Please go to your doctor and ask for a thorough foot examination. Diabetes does affect the feet, and this might be a serious complication. See: The Diabetes Monitor: Diabetes and Foot Pain.
