Foot problems

Persistently raised blood glucose results in damage to nerves and blood vessels in the feet which can reduce sensation and cause circulation problems. Because of this, people with diabetes may not notice cuts, sores or swelling on the feet, and without treatment wounds may become infected.

More information on ways to look after the feet and ensure that early signs of foot problems are dealt with promptly is available in the section on Footcare.
