Diabetes affects more than 30 million Americans, and there are likely millions more who are unaware that they have it.
This can be very bad news, especially for feet.
The effects of diabetes can be especially devastating to our feet if the right steps aren’t taken to address problems early enough. Even a minor, everyday scrape can grow into an infected, life-threatening wound if left unchecked.
How does this happen, and what can you and we do to prevent it from becoming this way?
