How diabetes affects your feet
Diabetes can significantly affect your feet in a number of ways. It can cause nerve damage, poor circulation, and loss of sensation that can lead to serious foot problems such as ulcers and infections.
Poor circulation is a common side effect of diabetes and it can lead to weakened immune systems and an inability to fight off infection. In addition, people with diabetes often experience numbness in their feet due to nerve damage caused by the disease.
This lack of feeling often leads diabetics to not realize they have injured their feet until they suffer from an infection or ulcer.
