What Is a Diabetic Foot?
People with diabetes are prone to foot problems that develop due to prolonged periods of high blood sugar levels.
Diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease are the two main foot problems that occur, and both can have serious complications.
Foot Problems in Diabetes
The two main foot problems that occur in people with diabetes are:
Over time, diabetes can cause nerve damage that leads to numbness in the feet. This can make it hard for people with diabetes to feel sensation in their extremities.
The condition also makes it difficult for a person with diabetes to feel irritation, soreness, or infection on the feet. They may not notice when their shoes are rubbing. This lack of sensation can lead to an increased risk of cuts, sores, and blisters.
If a person does not receive treatment for an infection, ulcers and even gangrene can develop. If a person develops gangrene, they may require an amputation. TO If aperson develops gangrene, a doctor might suggest amputation.
Peripheral vascular disease
Diabetes leads to changes in the blood vessels, including arteries. In peripheral vascular disease, fatty deposits block vessels beyond the brain and heart.
It tends to affect blood vessels leading to and from the extremities, such as the hands and feet, reducing blood flow to both.
Reduced blood flow can lead to pain, infection, and wounds that heal slowly. If a person develops a severe infection, a doctor may recommend amputation.
When to see a doctor
People who have diabetes should see a doctor regularly as part of their care.
However, anyone who notices any of the following changes should seek immediate medical attention:
- - Changes in skin color on the foot
- - Swelling in the foot or ankle
- - Temperature changes in the feet
- - Persistent sores on the feet
- - Pain or tingling in the feet or ankles
- - Ingrowing toenails
- - Athlete's foot or other fungal infections of the feet
- - Dry, cracked skin on the heels
- - Signs of infection
