Could toe nail fungus be a symptom of diabetes?

1302829930 56 Could toe nail fungus be a symptom of diabetes?

It's not really severe, but I have it on my two big toes and one small one. I've had it since I was 9 and I'm 24 now. I don't have any neuropathy but my left toe just feels cold.

No, but high blood sugar can exacerbate any type of fungal growth. if the fungus gets down to the nailbed, it can interfere with nerve function and this might account for the cold feeling. make a preparation of olive oil and tea tree oil. Wash and dry toes. Spread preparation around the infected area, and cover. do this every day for a year. It's very effective.

See your doctor. There are medications available to treat fungus that has invaded tissue and can not be cured with home remedies.

Check your blood sugar.
