2 Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes mellitus occurs when the insulin levels produced by the body are too low, leading to increased blood glucose levels. If not controlled in time, high blood glucose levels can damage multiple organs in the body. One of the major complications of diabetes mellitus is peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage) caused by high blood glucose present in the blood for extended periods. This often results in patients experiencing abnormal sensations like pins and needles. This nerve disorder is also a cause of restless leg syndrome.
So, if you are diabetic, make sure to maintain your blood sugar level within a normal range. See your doctor if you are concerned that you are demonstrating symptoms of diabetes which could be connected to RLS.
