Diabetes can affect many parts of the body, especially the feet and heels. It is very important that diabetics take special care of their feet. Diabetics may develop serious foot problems more quickly and have more complications as a result than people without the disease. For example, a small irritation like an open blister in a healthy person could become a severe issue to a diabetic.
The key for a diabetic is to view all foot problems as potentially dangerous and to prevent them by seeking podiatric care as soon as they occur. Diabetic amputation is a very real threat for those that delay in treatment.
