With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the foot problems associated with diabetes. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘It is common knowledge that diabetes puts you at risk of having other serious problems, but you may not know that it can be a real burden for your feet... One of the major problems with your feet when you have diabetes is called diabetic neuropathy. What happens when you have this is that you’ll begin to feel a lack of sensation in your feet and your legs. This is often accompanied by a tingling or burning sensation as well as pain and complete numbness in the affected area.’
Yourwellness Magazine explained that peripheral vascular disease is another foot condition that develops due to diabetes, and causes poor blood flow that affects the ability of sores or cuts on the feet to heal. Yourwellness Magazine also pointed out that even things as seemingly meaningless as corns, hard skin, dry skin, bunions and blisters can be problematic for those with diabetes if they occur alongside other diabetic health concerns. To prevent these foot problems, Yourwellness Magazine recommended good overall diabetes control, as well as taking care of and checking feet every day.
