Diabetic Foot Care
Wounds on the feet pose a severe risk to individuals with diabetes. In fact, more than half of diabetic-related hospitalizations are due to diabetic foot problems. Diabetes can lead to a variety of conditions, in which you may experience loss of sensation, develop nerve pain (diabetic neuropathy) and suffer from insufficient circulation. Poor circulation in the feet can lead to life-threatening infections, and/or the risk of amputation.
