How are my feet at risk?
Diabetic foot complications
Because of the nerve damage that often occurs in people suffering from diabetes, feet can become numb and therefore susceptible to further injury.
Cuts, sores, and blisters which wouldn’t otherwise be a problem, can quickly become infected and malignant if unnoticed and untreated.
Reduced blood flow is another common complication of diabetes without proper care and attention could result in permanent damage to foot tissues, especially in the toes.
Common symptoms associated with diabetic feet:
Numb and tingling sensations
Dry and cracked skin
Thick yellow nails
