Hello all,

I am a 42 year old male, and just had a yearly physical. My Doctor stated that I have slightly high blood sugar. It was 101 fasting, but he said that my GTT Glucose tolerance test was in normal range. My Thyroid level was also a little high. 6.95. My biggest complaint is that my feet always feel as if they are hot on the top, and radiate into my toes. Wearing shoes is not painful, but feels very annoying. I really would like to find out what this could be. My doctor seems to think that I am imagining the sensation, but he couln't be more wrong. I have been feeling this sensation for about 3 or 4 months now. I am 5' 9" tall, I weigh 170 lbs, and I work in a office. I generally work out about four times a week on a tread mill for a half hour each time. I usually burn 250 calories, and I get my heart rate up to about 135 bps. Looking online for answers is very difficult because there are so many different views, but there has to be someone out there that had experienced the same symptoms. Please, if you have had similar symptoms and found relief, share your solution with me. Thank you all for your time and knowledge.

  • Seems like a symptom of diabetes. You might want to get copies of all your blood work and get a second opinion from an endocrinologist. Tell him about your feet.

  • I agree with Monsterlove. Neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. You might also want to start a small dose of thyroid meds if you have any of the symptoms caused by your thyroid. Neuropathy can also be a symptom from that. Good luck!

  • Thank you very much for your responses. I will get to see a specialist in that area as soon as possible. From everything that I have read on-line, blood sugar at 101 is not really considered to be diabeties; but maybe I'm missing something. I will follow your advice and double check just to be sure.

  • Wow, yes to all of the above. I will look into this. Would these frequencies of energy, or magnetic/wireless waves possibly make people become diabetic? How long would I have to stay away from these activities before symptoms would improve? Thanks for the insight. I appreciate it.
