I was diagnosed with type 2 a year ago. In the last month the heels on both of my feet are beginning to collapse at times. Especially on my right foot. I almost hit the floor when this happens. Anyone had this problem?

I have not had that exact problem, although, I do have a bit of trouble walking around when I am either HIGH or LOW .. I stumble a bit.. which I think is pretty typical. If I was you I would make an appointment with my Dr. and discuss this with them.

You didn't mention how your sugars have been? Do you notice it more when your high? low? or does it just happen?

Heels

Hello haystack, welcome to the community!

A podiatrist is the appropriate doctor for foot problems. Diabetics have to be very careful with their feet.

If there is pain in your heels accompanied by reddness and very warm to the touch then it could be gout.

If there is tingling and sensitivity to being touched then it might be neuropathy.

I hope you see a podiatrist soon. Good luck!

Heel Condition
WHAT IS A HEEL SPUR? The heel bone is the largest bone in the foot and absorbs the most stress. A heel spur is an abnormal growth of bone either at the back of the heel, or most commonly on the bottom of the heel. The most common symptom of a heel spur is to have pain when first getting out of bed in the morning, or after resting for 20 minutes then getting up.
