When the blood sugar is too high it damages the small blood vessels and nerves in the body, most commonly found in the eyes, kidneys, and feet. In the feet, with poor blood flow and decreased nerve function, a person with diabetes might not feel a small injury or cut which, left untreated, can become infected and lead to much greater problems like an infection in the bone. These small injuries to the feet can come from things as mundane as athletes foot, a hangnail or poor fitting shoes. That is why I always send my diabetic patients to a podiatrist for regular foot care. Dr. Mark Savant is a General Internist.
