Having diabetes means you are at much greater risk of developing foot problems. This is because raised blood glucose, also known as blood sugar, can damage the sensation in your feet. It can also affect your circulation, which can lead to you getting less blood supply to your feet. Without a good blood supply you may have problems with cuts and sores healing. You may also get cramps and pain in your legs or feet. If you don’t get these problems treated, they could lead to Athlete’s foot infections foot ulcers and, at worst, amputations. Most foot problems can be prevented with good regular foot care and regular Diabetic foot health checks. If you have Diabetes and suspect you have athlete’s foot, you should call your Podiatrist.
