How can Diabetes impact my feet?

Diabetic Neuropathy is the term used to describe the loss of feeling/sensation as a result of diabetes. You can lose all feeling in the feet as a result of Diabetic Neuropathy. The feet become vulnerable to infection because of the lack of sensory awareness. Let us say a patient develops an open wound however because they cannot feel the worn it may go untreated and develop an infection.

Diabetes also impacts the way blood flows throughout the body. Poor circulation in the legs can lead to open wounds not healing at a normal rate. This may lead to more serious conditions such as gangrene.
