When does unintentional weight loss return to normal?

Unintentional weight loss. Weight often returns to normal when you start to feel happier, after you’ve had time to grieve or get used to the change. Counselling and support may be needed to help you get to this stage. Significant weight loss can also be the result of an eating disorder, such as anorexia or bulimia.

Why does my toe hurt every time I take a step?

Articles On Bunions. Bunions form at a joint. That’s where the toe bends normally when you walk. But when you have a bunion, all of your body weight rests on it each time you take a step. It can hurt when you walk. And, because your shoe likely rubs against it, a bunion can also cause calluses to form.

Why are the tips of my big toes still sensitive?

The tops of the big toes are still sensitive and the other toes also seem O.K. so it may just be a build up of dead skin (I hope). I mentioned it at my last check but the DN didn’t seem to think it was an issue. However a podiatrist (has anyone seen one?) might be more qualified to comment.

Can a numb big toe be a sign of neuropathy?

Yes it has not got worse: but the loss of sharp/ clear sensation in the patch on each big toe is basically unchanged. I am concious of trying not to get into the ‘everything happening to me/ every symptom is to do with my diabetes’ mindset that many posters warn about. But should I arrange an appointment with my GP about this?

When to see a podiatrist for Numb toes?

Not really – similar symptoms (numb toe), very different cause and probably treatment. If you are diabetic, you need to get any problems with your feet properly checked. Not sure if it always a sign of neuropathy, but I would advise you to see a podiatrist. Any lack of feeling/sensation can lead to you not noticing other changes, ie infections.
