Thanks for posting your query.
Diabetes is a multi organ disease with involvement of almost all organs of body due to its complications.
Blood sugar both fasting and postprandial must be in controlled range.
Diabetes is due to progressive loss or destruction of beta cells in endocrinal part of pancreas.
With the available describes details, there could be possibility of diabetic neuropathy.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ neurologist and should go for thorough neurological check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, nerve conduction studies, glycosylated hemoglobin, 1, 25 dihydroxy cholecalciferol.
She should also take Epalrestat, methycobalamin, pregabalin/ gabapentin, and cholecalciferol sachet.
She should also apply neuro creme at affected site.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
