Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes peripheral neuropathy is very common in metabolic syndromes like diabetes. She needs supportive care, good nutritious elements specially vitamin B 12 folates and neurotonics. Supportive care with duloxetine helps with this burning sensation in feet and pain.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
