Diabetic Neuropathy | Questions to Ask Your Doctor

  • I haven’t been diagnosed with diabetes, but my feet are numb and sometimes tingle. Should I be tested for diabetes?
  • Should I wear high heeled shoes?
  • If I get a sore on my foot, should I see my doctor immediately, or is it okay to monitor it myself?
  • Can you recommend a good lotion for my feet?
  • I’ve had some problems with bladder control. Is there anything I can do to help my control?
  • Will my neuropathy ever get better?
  • Are there any medicines I can take to stop the pain?
