Hi.... It could be due to Diabetic Neuropathy.... Consistently keeping blood sugar within a target range can help prevent or delay the progression of diabetic neuropathy and may even improve some of the symptoms you already have..... To help slow nerve damage: Keep your blood pressure under control...Follow a healthy-eating plan...Get plenty of physical activity...Maintain a healthy weight....
