Hello,

The pain in the foot could be related to a pinched nerve or peripheral neuropathy caused by diabetes. I don't think that the pain is related to her current therapy. For this reason, I recommend performing nerve conduction studies in order to examine her nerves. Some blood lab tests are necessary too:
- Complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation
- Uric acid plasma levels
- Blood electrolytes
- Vitamin D plasma levels for possible deficiency

You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
