For this test you need a friend and a broom. Cut a bristle off the broom. Have your friend poke the bristle into the bottom of your foot for 2 seconds.
WHAT IT MEANS
If you cannot feel the pressure of the bristle on your foot you may have nerve damage, a warning sign for diabetes. Hand and foot pains can be indicators for diabetes, too.
WHAT TO DO
If you suspect you might have diabetes, see a doctor.
