Do any runners with diabetes out there know how to help me with a wee, tiny, almost insignificant problem?
I met with my endocrinologist today, who is awesome and was really happy with my spiffy 7.3 A1c. But she was not happy with the black callous on the end of one of my toes. This toe—the one next to my big toe on my left foot—frequently gets bruised or calloused. It doesn’t bother me—even if it blisters it doesn’t seem to hurt—and it’s been worse-looking in the past. (This was the toe that lost its toenail around this time last year before I got shoe inserts and learned how to take better care of my tootsies.) But I understand where my endo is coming from, even if I don’t agree that it’s a problem.
Does anyone have suggestions for things that I might try to keep my toes looking dainty and endo-approved?
