More about Diabetic Foot Care.

Diabetes puts a patient at high risk for foot complications. Increased glucose levels in the blood can lead to nerve damage and circulation issues, especially down in the lower parts of your legs, including your feet and ankles. These complications can result in non-healing wounds, infection, and even limb loss. For this reason, it’s always recommended that diabetics see a podiatrist on a regular basis.

Diabetics should see a podiatrist if they are experiencing and of the following.

• Numbness or tingling of the feet
