Foot problem can be an indicator to diabetes. Various foot problems like burning, tingling or numbness in your feet and toes, can lead to diabetes. Doctors looking at your feet often can detect diabetes before you see any other symptoms.
In your feet, the disease can cause your skin to dry so that it cracks and welcomes in infections. And you may not know if your feet are numb.
And while diabetes reveals itself in the feet, other conditions can be detected in your feet, too. Burning, tingling and numbness in the toes can also be symptoms of thyroid problems, nutritional deficiencies, back problems and pinched nerves in the ankles.
