Diabetes, needless to say, causes all kinds of complications for the rest of your bed. It affects every inch, all the way down to your feet. That’s why see a professional who can regularly evaluate feet is pivotal. With that said, don’t dawdle on visiting The DOCS for diabetes care in Las Vegas.
Among the most common byproducts of this condition is what’s called diabetic neuropathy. Quite a mouthful to pronounce, we understand. But where your energies should really be going is in understanding how it affects feet. It is a type of nerve damage that can cause pain, tingling, or even weakness in the foot. Not only that, it can also make the foot numb to…anything. Which is a dangerous prospect when you consider if the foot experiences an injury, you won’t even realize it since pain receptors aren’t working in that area. Another common symptom of neuropathy is changes to the shape of the foot and toes. Diabetes also contributes to the development of calluses, largely because there are high-pressures areas just under the foot. With that said, if you’re not sure that what you’re suffering from is neuropathy, it’s important to see a professional who can make that assessment. Whatever you do, don’t self-diagnose. And definitely don’t choose to ignore the issue, either.
