One of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. If you are experiencing burning feet and haven’t had a medical checkup in a while, it is a good idea to stop putting it off and to discuss it with your doctor. Diabetes can come on at any age and it pays to begin addressing it immediately.
