is that a symptom of high blood sugar?
he consulted a doctor and he said this was a symptom of blood sugar. am bit worried about this as its been around two weeks without any change. the only issue with this is it feels like burning when he eats spicy food. does it require further diagnosis or is it a symptom of blood sugar ?
