Has anybody out there ever heard of a Dr. named Joseph Borden . Along with a guy named Ricky Evertte ? They claim to have a book guide called " Diabetes Destroyed " to stop diabetes by removing the fatty acids in your blood in 28 days?

It is neuropathy. Diabetics have a higher chance of developing nerve damage because of high blood sugar. I actually got mine from the chemo treatments I went through last year (the chemo drugs I was given shot my blood sugar into the 400's). The neuropathy affected my feet, hands, and internal organs. My oncologist put my on Gabapentin and also suggested I take Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). My nerve damage has improved to where I don't have the pain but I do still have the numbness and must be careful where I step. I am now being weened off the Gabapentin. It took a good nine months to reach the point where I am now, but I know longer need to use a walker or cane. My blood sugar has also improved to where my primary doctor cut my Onglyza in half.

Hello Jay, There are times my skin on my feet feel dry, tight and like I have cuts on them. And when I feel them they feel soft. I find for the moment that putting lotion on my feet really helps. Just another idea. Be well, Debra

Sounds like neuropathy. Do your best to keep good sugars. There are things that help some people. Discuss it with your doctor.

Howdy Jay
I agree with Steve below. It is not diabetes itself, but it is diabetes related.

Since you indicate that it is only this way "sometime" does it mean there are times you feet are not affected? If this is so, keeping your BG (blood glucose) levels in the normal range may halt the progression and maybe after a while will stop. As nerves take a long time to heal from damage it may take a while till it is gone.

Diabetes is not the only cause of neuropathy since under the "causes" of the Mayo clinic link steve supplied you will see a listing of other things which cause nerve damage.

Me? I have suffered with a burning sensation from my knees to toes on both legs 24/7/365. It is painful to walk but I still do it. I refuse to give up and use a wheelchair to get around. I do however, use the electric shopping carts in stores when they are available. Otherwise a grocery shopping trip would wear me out and I'd have to take a multiple hour nap when I get home.

I pray you can stop and reverse the Neuropathy
