Diabetes and Foot Complications

Diabetic patience’s are prone to having foot problems, because of two complications of diabetes: first one nerve damage (neuropathy) and second one poor circulation. Neuropathy leads to cause loss of feeling in your feet, taking away your ability to feel discomfort and pain, so you are unable to detect an injury or irritation in your foot. Poor blood circulation in your feet reduces your ability to heal, making it hard for even a tiny cut to resist infection.

Diabetes-Related Foot & Leg Problems

  • Infections and ulcers (sores) that do not heal
  • Corns and calluses
  • Dry, cracked skin
  • Nail disorders
  • Hammertoes and bunions
  • Charcot foot
  • Poor blood flow
