When you have diabetes, your feet become susceptible to specific risks. Knowing about these risks can educate you in preventative care and tips to prevent developing other conditions.
Daily preventative care can help you decrease your risk of developing these other serious conditions like ulcers and infections. Inspecting your feet at the end of the day to look for any abnormalities, maintaining proper hygiene, keeping your feet warm in cold weather, encourage blood flow in the feet, and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle can discourage other conditions from developing.
