Diabetes: Lifestyle Tip for Diabetics #17

Diabetes and foot care


Diabetes causes nerve damage and reduced circulation that can be hazardous for your feet.  If you have sensory loss in your feet even if your feet develop callus or painful corn, any cut or injury, you will not even realise until it turns into ulcer, gangrene.
