Numbness, Tingling, and Pain

Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can be subtle at first and come on slowly. One of the most common signs is numbness, tingling, or pain -- particularly in the hands, feet, toes, legs, fingers, and arms. The feet and legs are likely to be affected before the hands and arms, which is why good foot care is so important for someone with diabetes.
