If the water is HOT, then don't stay in very long. Even for non-diabetics a HOT whirlpool is not recommended over 15 minutes. If you have limited sensation, then I would be very careful and have a friend test it for you. I don't feel comfortable in those for any length of time at all. If your skin begins to turn red, it's time to exit.

Forget that! I'll go in alone! hahahaa. I would guess it should be good for you since it probably promoted circulation right? Just watch out if you have high/low blood pressure as you don't want staying in too long to affect it either way!

I have a Spa, and have used it with no problems. I never set the water temperature above 100 degrees. But, to be safe, you should check with your Dr. and get his advice. That way you can probably enjoy using a whirlpool safely.
