Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetes can cause poor circulation or loss of feeling in your feet. This makes you more vulnerable to cuts, bruises, blister & other injuries, since you may not feel pain, cold, or heat on your lower extremities. Sometimes, even a tender spot, callus, corn or even a tiny break in the skin can turn into a full-blown wound which can lead to infection without your knowledge. Diabetics are more prone to infection and poor blood flow in your feet slows down healing. If not treated promptly, a small wound in your foot may lead to infection, the small wound becoming a larger wound & ultimately amputation.
