Do your feet tingle? Are they numb? If you answered yes to these questions, you could be suffering from diabetic neuropathy or peripheral neuropathy. Find out from a New Jersey podiatrist more about this foot condition here in this video.

Diabetic neuropathy is a disease of the nerves that diabetics suffer from. When there is too much sugar going to the nerve, the nerve can malfunction — causing a tingling and numbness feeling — or the nerve can even die. With peripheral neuropathy, it is considered neuropathy from the outside and can be caused from drinking too much, back pain, or other various causes.

There is treatment available for these foot conditions, and a New Jersey foot doctor can examine you to determine what type of treatment you may need. You may need proper fitting shoes, or you may be deficient in thiamin, also called vitamin B.

At Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, we have vitamin supplements that will increase thiamin in the nerves — relieving foot pain for many sufferers.
