One in four people with diabetes develops foot problems that require treatment. People who have diabetes are vulnerable to nerve and vascular damage that can result in poor circulation, loss of sensation and poor healing of foot ulcers. The absence of nerve and vascular symptoms, however, does not mean that a patient’s feet are not at risk. Early identification of foot problems and early intervention to prevent problems from worsening can avert many severe problems. Good foot care, therefore, is an essential part of diabetes management.
