Diabetes can be really tough on your feet even dangerous. Diabetes can cause nerve damage in the body’s extremities, causing a diabetic to lose feeling in their feet. Even the smallest of cuts, stepping on a thorn, or even a blister can result in a dangerous situation. With blood flow to the extremities lessened due to diabetes, any type of foot injury or laceration can quickly result in a very hard to heal situation.
