If you have diabetes, you have a double problem when it comes to foot and ankle health. One, reduced circulation suppresses your natural healing processes. Two, reduced nerve function can hide problems like ulcers from your attention until it’s too late, and the site has already become infected.
Diabetic ulcers commonly occur on the soles of feet, and they are the single leading cause of non-traumatic amputations nation-wide. Let an ulcer fester, and you could end up losing a toe, a foot, or even a leg. That’s why diabetic wound care is so important—without regular foot checks and prompt treatment, even minor scrapes can have disastrous complications.
