According to podiatrist Aderonke Ojo, DPM, "Left uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to too much sugar in the bloodstream. This makes the blood thicker, more syrupy, which often damages blood vessels and nerves in the foot. Your circulation system carries blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout your body. When you have poor circulation, your feet often suffer. You may feel pins and needles in your feet, a burning sensation at night, numbness, or a feeling like ants crawling on your feet."
 
Dr. Aderonke Ojo
 
 
"With neuropathy, there are different sensations. Sensory neuropathy is the loss of feeling, which can be extremely dangerous because pain is the body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Motor neuropathy is the loss of movement control, which can lead to conditions like hammertoe or contracted digits. Autonomic neuropathy affects the nerves that help the body regulate itself—this includes things like dry skin or brittle nails. Some nerve damage is reversible; some is not," says Dr. Ojo.
