Hi @A DiabetesTeam Member,
Anything that increases blood flow to or in your feet can ease neuropathy. Like gentle massage. Baby steps.

Warm soaks can help. Baby steps.

Cold Red laser therapy increases blood flow, as treatments from our wellness center showed. My Bride bought a therapeutic device for that. And she shows significant increased blood flow when used. Baby steps.

Zero shoes have had good testimonials for neuropathy. They are wider and encourage the barefoot experience. Baby steps.

They have helped my daughter in laws father. Baby steps.

They also have testimonials for plantar fasciitis. My daughter in law used them for more than a year. She saw immediate relief. Now she has no problem, even if she is on her feet all day. Baby steps.

As you walk on uneven surfaces such as gravel, pebbles, fields, sand, they seem to gently massage your feet. Baby steps.

I wore my new zero shoes for the first time today for 12 hours at the NJ Renaissance Faire. My feet were invigorated all day. They did not hurt, did not get tired, and feel better at the end of the day, than at the beginning. Baby steps.

My youngest daughter has encouraged me to try a pair for a year now. A couple of weeks ago I had a pair delivered. Today was a acid test. I think I am sold on them. As I continue this experiment, We will see over the coming weeks. Baby steps.

I normally wear only flip flops. They are high quality $50.00 - $70.00 flip flops, not shower shoes. Baby steps.

3 days ago I ordered a pair of zero shoes for my Bride. When they arrive, we will see how she does. She has extreme pronation of her feet. I've seen testimonials for that too. I'm willing to have her try with a pair of orthotics. As an engineer, I design and do all kinds of experiments. Hers will be another test. Baby steps.

Back to the question.
You can ask a neurologist. Baby steps.

You can ask a vascular specialist. Baby steps

You can ask a podiatrist. Baby steps.

And You can eat to your blood glucose meter. You can control your blood glucose numbers to the nondiabetic range of 4.0(72 usa) to 7.8(140 usa). Baby steps.

This will stop the cumulative vascular damage right where it is now. The reduced blood flow is slowly killing the nerves. This will halt killing the nerves that is causing the problem. Baby steps.

Increase the blood flow, give relief to the neuropathy. Baby steps.

Good luck.
Do what you need to do.
