Foot problems do not occur in every diabetic patient. However, every diabetic patient is more prone to infection and foot problems. Wounds may occur in the feet due to impaired nerve conduction in the legs, loss of sensation (neuropathy) or vascular disease (arterial disease-vascular occlusion).
If these wounds are ignored and treated well, incurable results may occur over time and leg loss will be inevitable.
HOW TO PREVENT DIABETIC FOOT PROBLEMS?
If your sugar is well controlled, foot problems can also be prevented. However, as good diabetes control is not always possible, nerve damage, vascular occlusion can lead to foot problems. Taking care of your feet is very important. Cleaning the feet and the comfort of the shoes you wear can prevent many problems from the beginning. The smallest crack and wound that develops in your foot may require medical attention.
