The Importance of Foot Health for Diabetics

For individuals living with diabetes, foot health is of paramount importance. Diabetes can affect the nerves and blood vessels in the feet, leading to reduced sensation, poor circulation, and a higher risk of developing foot complications. These complications can range from minor issues like calluses and corns to more serious conditions like ulcers, infections, and even amputations.
