Diabetes is a serious disease and if you have it, you should be very diligent in monitoring your foot health. Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, weaker immunity, and impaired foot nerve function. Diabetic feet are also more susceptible to the development of sores and non-healing ulcer wounds that can become infected. Without prompt treatment, these infections may require amputation or even lead to death. For all of these reasons, it’s critical for diabetics to have their feet evaluated by a podiatrist at least once per year.
