Diabetes is a major concern in India and uncontrolled diabetes damages the nerves of the feet causing a poor sensation and leading to diabetic foot complications and amputation. Lack of sensation in your feet is called sensory diabetic neuropathy. Diabetes also blocks the blood vessels causing a risk of infection in the feet and takes a longer time to heal the wound or infection. As a result of reduced blood supply, gangrene, ulcers, callouses and other infections might also happen. Regularly check your feet for any infections, redness and itchiness and consult a doctor for further treatment. To know more, watch the video.
