Is it a good idea for someone with type 1 diabetes to go for a 15 minute jog or is it best to walk?
It's fine: More intense cardiovascular workout is fine, especially since you are not talking about running a marathon - then I would always use a buddy system and have someone with me. But a 15 minute jog is fine. If you have history of hypoglycemic episodes, just make sure you eat and drink a little bit before your jog and make sure you tuck your glucose tablets in your sock in case you feel shaky. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hypoglycemia: The low level is modest, but raises a question of how well controlled your diet and medication truly is. Would discuss further with your endocrinologist. The pins and needles may be only symptoms, but diabetics can have peripheral neuropathies as a complication. Have your doctor check it out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not just diabetes: B"sd By foot, assume you mean one and not both feet. This suggests something other than diabetic neuropathy, which you may have also, since it is usually symmetric.

I am a diabetic since 4 yrs and since last month I have observed a blood clot on my 2nd finger of both toes, happens when I have my routine walk?
Need foot exam: You may be suffering from improper shoe wear which can be exquisitely dangerous in a diabetic. I am assuming by seeing a blood clot, you mean a scab or blood blister. You should certainly have a foot exam to make sure you are getting appropriate blood supply to those toes and make sure your shoes are not causing damage. Get checked out to avoid eventual amputation. Also keep close eye on sugars. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
