Do you have diabetes? Do you experience numbness or pain in your lower legs or feet, or do you have sores on your feet that don’t seem to heal properly? Diabetes (hyperglycemia), is a disease in which people have trouble keeping their blood glucose normal. When a person with diabetes has trouble controlling their high blood sugar, it decreases the effectiveness of their immune system and they have a difficult time fighting infection. This health complication has a direct impact on the diabetic’s feet, in particular due to peripheral artery disease (lack of circulation) and peripheral neuropathy (loss of feeling).
