Diabetologist 's  Response

Your husband is a Diabetic and has cardiomyopathy also.
He is not taking care of his diet.
So his blood sugar is not under control and High blood sugar is very high.
Now he is complaining of tingling and numbness and burning pain.
This is due to Diabetic neuropathy.
High blood sugar will damage the peripheral nerves and it is in most cases irreversible.
Control of blood sugar and insulin will help.
