Diabetes has been around since the dawn of time. One out of four people with diabetes develops foot problems that require treatment. They become 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 does not mean that a patient’s feet are not at risk. Early identification of foot problems and early intervention can prevent many severe problems. Good foot care, therefore, is an essential part of diabetes management.
