MOST FOOT SPECIALIST INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODIST AGREE THAT DIABETIC PATIENT'S ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE FOOT PROBLEMS.  DIABETES DAMAGES THE NERVES IN YOUR LEG AND FEET, WHICH IN TURN MAKE YOU LESS ABLE TO FEEL AN INJURY OR PRESSURE ON THE SKIN OF YOUR FOOT.  MANY TIMES SEVERE DAMAGE OR INFECTION OCCURS BEFORE THEY EVEN NOTICE.

DIABETES ALSO DECREASES YOUR BODIES ABILITY TO FIGHT INFECTIONS COMPOUNDING THE PROBLEM.  DAMAGE TO BLOOD VESSELS RESULTS IN LESS BLOOD AND OXYGEN REACHING YOUR FEET.  BECAUSE OF THIS, SMALL SORES OR BREAKS IN THE SKIN CAN RESULT IN DEEP SKIN ULCERS.  MANY TIMES THESE ULCERS RESULT IN LIMB AMPUTATION.  

IF YOU HAVE DIABETES, YOU SHOULD IMPROVE CONTROL OF YOUR BLOOD SUGAR, STOP SMOKING, HAVE YOUR FEET EXAMINED BY A FOOT SPECIALIST AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR, LOSE ANY EXCESS WEIGHT, INCREASE YOUR LEVEL OF ACTIVITY AND CARE FOR YOUR FEET EVERYDAY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE KNOWN NERVE OR BLOOD VESSEL DAMAGE.
