Diabetes mellitus is a complex condition with a myriad of complications that manifest in a number of ways. Some of the most devastating complications occur in the feet. Complications of diabetes are a leading cause of amputations of toes, feet and legs. Diabetes can cause peripheral neuropathy resulting in the loss of protective sensation of the feet. Essentially this means that the feet lose their ability to detect pain from tight-fitting shoes, stepping on a tack, a cut from a shard of glass, stubbing a toe, etc. Diabetic Foot Care is a comprehensive guide for diabetic patients and their caregivers. In addition to a basic overview of diabetes and common foot problems related to diabetes, Diabetic Foot Care also includes: Basic care for feet's skin, nails, shoes, and socks Safe exercise and diet tips to promote foot health Guide to finding and seeing a doctor Overview of medications for specific foot problems.
