Most diabetics get it over a period of time because of peripheral neuropathy.Other than keeping sugar levels under strict control,there is nothing much one can do about it.But you can get relief from pain by applying a foot cream like DIAFOOT cream.Be careful while walking on wet floor after applying the cream because it could be somewhat slippery.

I am sure you may be a diabetic, since the symptoms are similar to my foot burning. I do walking, exercise and diet control apart from taking regular medicines prescribed by your Dr. Once, if you have the feeling of burning in foot, you have to massage your feet. The good one I do is, there is a massager for ladies to facial makeup. It is within Rs 300/- with battery operated. Use that massager for your foot, it will give you relief from pain and burning. Ii is available in ShopClues. It is Beauty Massager M1201.

You have got diabetic neuropathy. Erectile dysfunction is another symptom of neuropathy.

Check your blood sugar daily and maintain the same to a normal level. There is no cure for diabetic neuropathy. The aim of treatment is to prevent further deterioration of nerve damage.

If you can't maintain high blood sugar to a normal level, adopt insulin therapy in consultation with your diabetologist.
