From America On-Line:

If I have existing problems such as burning in the feet, is this permanent or does it reverse? I have just been diagnosis with diabetes in the early onset stage.


Burning at your feet could be a form of diabetic neuropathy and symptoms may improve if proper therapy is applied. Check with your doctor as to whether you'll need further procedures to ascertain if the diagnosis is correct.
