|the numbness and tingling may be due to a term called neuropathy. It is a common problem in people living with diabetes. Often times, the symptoms can be sudden in onset, and you may feel buring or a stabbing pain. However, more often then not the feeling is more like a loss of sensation or a tingling feeling. It usually occurs in the extremities because neuropathy affects the peripheral nerves. The best way to keep it under control it to check your glucose level several times a day and keep control of your diet because neuropathy is likely to occur when your in a hyperglycemic or hypoglycemic state.
