Get done blood sugar level, vitamin b 12 level, thyroid function test.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
Numbness toes are commonly seen with diabetes, vitamin b 12 deficiency, thyroid diseases and anemia.
So better to get done sugar estimation, vitamin b 12 level, thyroid function test and complete blood count (CBC) to identify the cause.
Treatment is based on cause.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
