I’m just going to list them out…
Dry scaly skin right where the ankle “bump” is. I have had this since I was 13 or 14, and lotions don’t seem to help.
Bottoms of feet burn if I stand too long.
Cramping in some toes while walking on the treadmill or using the ellptical. Doesn’t seem to matter how wide / roomy the shoes are. Sometimes this happens walking outside too and I have to stop and flex my foot to make the cramp go away so I can walk again.
Every morning my feet are very stiff and tender, until I walk around for a while. Coming downstairs to use the bathroom during the night, or first thing in the morning, I can’t take the steps one at a time, but I have to shuffle-step. My feet just don’t feel very flexible till they “warm up.”
I have been diagnosed with plantar fascitis before, and I am very overweight for my height, and I have always chalked these things up to carrying too much weight. But it be because of diabetes? And if so, what can / should I do about it?
I don’t think my BG goes very high, at this point. I have never measured it over 167, and usually it is well below 140 post-prandial. So I should not be having diabetes-related foot problems, should I?
