Goldie- I use olive oil, on my feet, three times a week.  I no longer have a problem with dry feet, or dryness on top of the toes, and the nails are looking healthier, too.

I must admit that my glucose is in better check, then previously, so that might have something, to do with it, but still not below 7 for H1AC.

This is not anything I would use.  Germaben has parabens in it and I prefer paraben free products.

The Uremol is probably not a long-term solution. Probably best to try natural oil.... and actually, an aesthetician I once knew said organic sesame oil works wonders as a body moisturizer. Not sure if it would work for dry heels but perhaps if you used it 2 or 3 times a day.

Hmmm, reading up on parabens... pretty uncool stuff, especially when it's a body moisturizer. Actually, this has prompted me to think about getting over to the local HFS and stocking up on healthier body moisturizers. Kiss My Face is one brand I have used in the past (Peaches and Cream) but according to a few reviews on Amazon they have changed their products.

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
