Diabetes is a metabolic disease caused by high blood sugar, often a result of the body not producing enough insulin. Complications from this disease can arise and cause foot pain and problems, including sensory neuropathy, foot ulcers and wounds. Because of issues with circulation and a decline in the sensations of the feet, it’s important to pay close attention for loss of feeling or the development of wounds and ulcers, which left untreated can result in the loss of toes or even the whole foot. Advanced Foot Care And Orthotics in Waterdown, ON, will work with you to assess your needs and discuss semi to semi-annual diabetic foot assessment options.
