Why is Foot Care Important for Diabetics?

As a diabetic, it is especially important that you care for your feet properly and pay attention to any changes that occur. High blood glucose levels can cause damage to the nerves that lead to your feet (also known as diabetic neuropathy). When the nerves are damaged it is possible to develop wounds on your feet that go unnoticed. These wounds can lead to serious infection and possibly amputation. Taking the proper steps to care for your feet can prevent this from happening.
