Placing importance on proper foot care is critical for the overall health of a person with diabetes. The fact that diabetes can affect a person’s feet makes it imperative that the feet are continuously checked for any potential problems. It has been shown that a person with diabetes is more than twice as likely to suffer complications from foot problems as someone without diabetes.

Common problems such as ingrown toe nails or thick callouses can lead to infections and amputations of the lower limb if not properly cared for.
