I am a diabetic. I often have burning sensation in my feet. What is it due to? What is the solution?

It sounds like you have athlete's foot. Athlete's foot is a fungus you catch in locker rooms and at pools. It grows in damp warm dark places (like between the toes and under the foot. You can get it on your hands so when you treat your feet, treat also your hands. It is not dangerous, just uncomfortable. Go to the pharmacy and purchase a product for athlete's foot. Creams work best but purchase a spray to disinfect your shoes. PS do not wash your socks in javex as it is an irritant. Anyone can get athlete's foot. This is not because you are not clean or a diabetic. Also make sure to wear a pair of flippers when you are at a pool or in a locker room and do not walk barefoot so other people won't get it. Disinfect your floor and bathtub with a germ killer. Athlete's foot is resistent to treatment and you will have to persevere to kill it. If your feet start to peel, see a dermatologist

I don't know, but I am starring it so that some people that I know here on Y! will answer it. There is a pharmacist here online that knows a lot about diabetes.
Sorry I know just a little about diabetes. But I can help you with nutrition to get rid of your diabetes (if you have adult onset diabetes, that is).

It could be neuropathy or nerve damage. I suggest monitoring your blood sugar levels much more closely and actually looking at your feet to make sure there is nothing wrong such as a cut, or infection.

Lynn Bodoni
The nerves in your feet are injured and dying. It's called neuropathy. You need to monitor your blood sugar more closely, and follow your diet and exercise program better.

Examine your feet every day for injuries and lesions.

This is called diabetic neuropathy and is caused by damage to the nerves from the diabetes. There are some medications that your GP can give you for this. Good control of blood sugar levels is very important also.

Ms. T
Diabetes neuropathy is a complication caused by diabetes that involves nerve damage in the body. Over time when a person’s blood sugar levels are high and not controlled there can be damage to the nerves throughout the body. This damage makes it hard for the nerves to carry messages to the brain and other parts of the body.

The best way to control or slow this down is to control your blood sugar levels.

You can do this by exercise, eating a healthy diet, medications and natural supplements to fill in the nutritional gaps.

Some supplements that will help with the pain, tingling and burning sensation are alpha lipoic acid, chromium, and b-complex to name a few.

Good luck to you.
