Question from Aurora, Illinois, USA:

I am 37 and have had diabetes for over 15 years. I am starting to get tingling in the feet (neuropathy), but have not lost feeling yet. Is this reversible with better control and exercise?

Answer:

From: DTeam Staff

The tingling can be made better with improved blood sugar control. Once the feet have lost all sensation, there is generally no return of sensation. It becomes extremely important to look at your feet in a strategy to compensate what your nerves won’t tell you.
