K... Splits in legs....topical application with mild salicycilic acid cream shall suffice the problem.

Getting tired in this age, can be expected.

However neither diabetes can be diagnosed nor ruled out only on the sole complaint of tiredness. You have to get Fasting blood sugar to reach a conclusion.
