Neuropathy: Diabetes can cause peripheral neuropathy if not well controlled. You need to have your glucose frequently checked and your medications adjusted by your physician. Mention your symptoms to your physician, they can give you medications to help.

Foot tingling: Diabetics are prone to diabetic neuropathy, which can manifest in tingling. You will need to have your doc examine you and find the reason for your tingling. One interesting fact found recently is B12 deficiency caused by metformin. I find a lot of my patients of your age especially with diabetes to be B12 deficient.

I agree with : Previous answer however it may not be related to your diabetes. Get checked for neuroma or nerve entrapment too.

Possible neuropathy: Depending on the affected nerves, symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities. Neuropathy may affect your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and the heart. For some people, the symptoms are mild; for others, it can be painful and disabling.
