 Why is foot care important?

 

Over time, diabetes can cause you to lose feeling in your feet. When you lose feeling in your feet, you may not feel a pebble inside your sock or a blister on your foot, which can lead to cuts and sores. Diabetes also can lower the amount of blood flow in your feet. Numbness and less blood flow in the feet can lead to foot problems.

Foot care is very important for all people with diabetes, for many people without diabetes, and even more so if you have:

●     pain or loss of feeling in your feet (numbness, tingling)

●     changes in the shape of your feet or toes

●     sores, cuts, or ulcers on your feet that do not heal
