People suffering from diabetes are prone to many other health problems. One of them is a foot problem. If the blood sugar level is high for prolonged periods, it can wreak havoc on many body parts including the feet. The two main conditions that are responsible for foot problems are Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and Peripheral neuropathy (PN). Let us look at PVD in detail here.
The most common form of peripheral neuropathy is due to diabetes. People with diabetes have an abnormal elevation of their glucose and lack adequate insulin to metabolise the glucose. As a consequence, the blood glucose damages the nerve. This can occur in any type of diabetes. It doesn’t matter if the patient is on oral anti diabetic drugs, on insulin or is diet controlled. The nerve damage that occurs is considered to be permanent.
