Hi welcome to Healthcare Magic

Since the blood sugars are high you need to control it by taking prescribed medications regularly.. Avoid sweet items, chocolates. coffee, tea... exercise is need to keep you blood glucose low.. your foot is needed to clinically examined.. at time being you can use soft sandles or slippers .. diabetic persons are more prone to foot infections.. you must be careful..

I have pains in the heel of my right foot. It started about a month ago. I changed the type of shoes I wear for work, but I am still having problems. Lately its been getting worse. Now my ankle starts to hurt to the point that sometimes I feel like it won t support me. I am on my feet constantly at my job. Even when I sit my right foot hurts. Then of course when I stand and try to walk, I limp. Last night my entire right leg started to hurt extremely bad.

I have had these symptoms for about three months. It hurts on the bottom of my foot near the heel. It feels worse when I don t put weight on it or take long walks. I ve had heel spurs on my right heel which I had treated. These new pains in my left heel feels different.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
