Diabetes Affects Your Feet

         Diabetes can have debilitating effects on patients’ extremities, especially the feet. Diabetic foot conditions develop from a combination of causes including poor circulation and neuropathy. Patients who have developed diabetic neuropathy are prone to ulcers that may lead to amputations. The American Diabetes Association reports that 50% - 70% of all non-traumatic amputations occur in patients with diabetes. Some ulcers are related to improper footwear and foot support. Many diabetes related foot injuries and amputations can be prevented through orthopedic solutions.
