Can Diabetes Cause My Burning Feet?

By    |   Monday, 03 Feb 2014 05:45 PM

Question: I have diabetes and recently started feeling a burning sensation in feet, and have been getting headaches, feeling weak, anxious, fearful, and moody. Are these problems related to my diabetes, and what can I do about them?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Burning sensations of your feet may be warning signs of diabetic neuropathy. Onset of neuropathy may be delayed by aggressive care of your diabetes, and tends to occur relatively quickly.
 
Your symptoms are quite concerning, and you are best advised to see your doctor for further evaluation as soon as possible. Your symptoms may occur from under-treatment as well as from excess insulin replacement.
 
You might want to start charting your blood sugar levels before a meal and at bedtime to aid your physician in planning the best management strategy.
