If you have diabetes, along with watching your weight and exercise, you should pay attention to your feet. Often, it is the feet that “talk” to persons who have diabetes in an attempt to let you know that something is wrong. Over time, Diabetes may cause neuropathy or nerve damage which can lead to decreased or loss of sensation or feeling in the feet. The nerve damage caused by diabetes may start with the feeling of “pins and needles” or tingling as the circulation to the feet starts to decrease. Eventually, those sensations disappear and the feet begin to feel numb. This means you may injure your feet and not feel it, any cuts or bruises will go unnoticed and possibly turn into severe infections.
