Possibility of Infection
Diabetes can affect the blood supply to the legs and feet. This can mean that there is an increased susceptibility to infection and a delayed healing time should the skin become injured. This can lead to ulceration and sometimes gangrene. If you feel there is something looking not right with your feet or have an injury that will not go away, please get in touch as soon as possible so we can diagnose the issue and resolve it.
The nerves of the feet and legs can also be affected, this is known as neuropathy. This can cause numbness and the ability to feel pain can disappear, which can make it difficult to know if shoes fit correctly or if the skin has become sore or tender. If you start to experience numbness or are noticing any injuries that you don't remember getting, please get in touch so we can help you.
