Diabetes can cause many complications that can induce nerve damage to the feet, which can make it difficult to realize that your foot is cut or susceptible to infections.
Those who have diabetes should regularly inspect their feet by checking the tops, edges, soles, heels, and toes for cuts or discolored skin.
Foot Ulcers are sores on the feet that can lead to serious complications.
Peripheral Arterial Disease is another way of describing poor circulation whereby blood containing ample amounts of oxygen cannot reach the feet.
“Neuropathy” is a term that means nerve disease. Peripheral neuropathy means the affected nerves are located in the arms, hands, legs, and feet, as opposed to our central nervous system.
