I recently have experienced a tingling in both feet when I lay down to go to sleep. I also have arthritis in both ankles. Should I be concerned, if I maintain my blood sugar?

Tingling Feet
In diabetics , decades over there could be side effects due to impedance of circulation or degeneration of the blood vessels that could cause numbness of the extremeties.
Homeopathic medicine has good remedies like sulph, gymnema sylvestra, gnaphalium, cephalandra indica which would help in preventing the side effects.
I am sure homeopathic medicine would be of help to you.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Tingling of feet indicates neuropathy. Its microvascular complication of diabetes mellitus.
Arthritis of ankles is also one of the reason.
Keep your HbA1C at 48mmol/mol and start pregabalin. Use to wear especially designed diabetic foot wear.
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
