Dr. Aaron Albers, podiatrist at Trinity Health, said that foot issues for people with diabetes are a huge problem and about 50 percent of the people who come in to see him have diabetes. He also said they amputate limbs quite a bit, but they do their best to save them. Amputations happen more so with people in the end stages of diabetes, Albers added.

People with diabetes can end up losing feeling in their feet. It slowly creeps up, so the person can lose sensation without realizing it, Albers said. One issue that can arise is losing sensation in the feet and developing pressure sores or ulcers that can cause bigger problems over time, he said.
