Tingling in Feet Could Be Early Sign of Diabetes
New study finds that patients with tingling in feet (and sometimes hands) may in fact be experiencing the first signs of "prediabetes".
According to Dr. A. Gordon Smith of the University of Utah, all pre-diabetic patients he examined had initially complained of numbness, pain, tingling or a burning sensation in the feet and, at times, also in the fingers.
He further commented that, awareness of the symptoms can lead to early diagnosis and treatment for prediabetes.
