Why Should I Take Care Of My Feet Because I Have Diabetes?

If you have diabetes, you are at a greater risk for complications happening in your feet. Because of poor blood circulation, your legs and feet can be severely impacted just by a small scrape or cut. Since having diabetes can elevate your glucose levels your nervous system is at risk. If you have damaged nerves it can lead to neuropathy, which can cause an array of issues to your feet.

If you are not able to feel your feet then how will you be able to know when to get medical treatment? Along with neuropathy, poor circulation, foot ulcers and skin changes need to be on your radar when you inspect your feet. In severe cases foot amputation of the foot can occur. For more information on how diabetes can affect your feet, visit our “diabetic foot” page. If you want to stop the effects of diabetes on your feet, contact our office.
