Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet—even a small cut can produce serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder to heal an injury or resist infection. Because of these problems, you may not notice a foreign object in your shoe.
If you have diabetes you should make an appointment today with Ace Podiatry. Most diabetic patients qualify for Routine Foot Care every 2 months, covered by your medical insurance. They will keep your feet in tip top condition and help prevent you from developing serious complications.
