According to Sandra Lee Franco, DPM, MS, Podiatric Surgeon with Care Resource, “Many people with diabetes experience complications with their. Feet. You can have nerve damage in any part of your body, but nerves in your feet and legs are most. Often affected. Nerve damage can cause you to lose feeling in your feet. Nerve damage, along with poor blood flow puts you at risk for developing a foot ulcer that could get infected. If an infection doesn’t get better with treatment, your toe, foot, or part of your leg may need to be. Amputated.”

Foot problems can be avoided if you take care of your feet and act quickly when you have a problem.
