Hi there I understand your concern...First of all you should start taking a high fibre diet, incorporate more of fruits which can be taken in diabetic patients, green leafy vegetables and salads in diet...Drink plenty of water....You should always take walk after meals and follow daily workout regime....With that fallow relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation,avoid alcohol, smoking, coffee, tea...take syp duphalac 10 ml at night time with milk or warm water....numbness and other symptoms may be due to peripheral neuropathy...More than half of people with diabetes develop some type of neuropathy....Consult nearest physician they will do the needful.
