suggestive of peripheral neuropathy... Possible causes are B vitamins, including B-1, B-6 and B-12, vitamin E and niacin are crucial to nerve health. Alcoholism. Poor dietary choices made by alcoholics can lead to vitamin deficiencies. Autoimmune diseases. These include Sjogren's syndrome, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy and necrotizing vasculitis. Diabetes. More than half of people with diabetes develop some type of neuropathy....Consult nearest physician they will help you

Hi there...I can understand your concern. Loss of sensations and numbness over feet is usually due to peripheral neuropathy. Peuropathy neuropathy could be caused diabetes, nerve degeneration, trauma. Difficulty in movements in that age could be due to osteoarthritis. He will need detailed clinical examination and further investigations. So kindly consult a neurologist for further evaluation.
