People living with diabetes are prone to having foot problems, often because of two complications common among diabetics: nerve damage and poor circulation. Neuropathy (nerve damage) may cause loss of feeling in your feet, taking away your ability to feel pain and discomfort, so you may not detect an injury or irritation. Poor circulation in your feet reduces your ability to heal, making it hard for even a tiny cut to resist infection. If medical attention is delayed and the conditions worsens, amputation may be required.
