When you have a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes, routine foot care is essential... but why? Uncontrolled blood sugar levels over time will effect your feet by causing: dry/cracked skin, calluses, poor circulation, ulcers and diabetic neuropathy.
Neuropathy is nerve damage associated with numbness, tingling and pain in the feet and makes simple tasks like cutting your toenails, walking and putting on your shoes more difficult.
For those reasons, it is important to see your podiatrist to detect problems early and to prevent ulcers or infection.
