Overview

Diabetic patients are at heightened risk for various foot conditions due to poor blood circulation and nerve damage, often resulting from uncontrolled blood sugar levels. These complications can make the feet more susceptible to ulcers, infections, and even amputations if not properly managed and treated.

Diabetic ulcers describe wounds that do not heal normally and are at high risk of deterioration and infection due to a multitude of interrelated diabetic complications.

Diabetic foot ulcers typically form due to:

  • Overloading of a particular area of the foot
  • A small abrasion or blister from unsuitable footwear choices
  • Ingrown toenails

Diabetes can cause many complications such as blindness, kidney failure, and foot ulcerations. Although all these examples are serious, foot ulcerations are likely the most severe complication as they can lead to gangrene or tissue death, or even result in eventual amputation of the limb or death if sepsis develops.

FAQs

What are the early signs of diabetic foot problems?

People with diabetes can experience nerve damage, which can lead to numbness. This can make it difficult to feel pain, resulting in foot injuries such as wounds and fractures going unnoticed. Delayed or improper care due to a state of obliviousness is a likely probability as to why a diabetic wound is not recovering.
