    Rub the cream into the skin, then put on the socks. The reason you have to pay good attention to your feet is because diabetics are notorious for getting bad infections in their feet, and get so bad where you have to have them amputated, I knew this old guy who had that happened, his name was wheel-chair sam, he's dead now because he was about 90.

    In diabetes you need to take extra care of your limbs. some people believe in herbal treatment but I don't believe in herbal treatment of diabetes which claims that it can completely uproot the diabetes. I think it is insane to believe in these quakes who have no knowledge about medical science and without understanding human anatomy they just advise such a medicine.
