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..
