Effects of Diabetic Neuropathy
Poorly managed blood glucose levels can damage delicate nerve fibers, causing diabetic neuropathy. If not proactively addressed, diabetic neuropathy itself may have a negative effect on your foot health and quality of life.
Diabetic Neuropathy, Foot Health and Quality of Life
Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy include extreme sensitivity to touch, burning, shooting pains in the leg and foot and/or numbness. These symptoms make everyday life harder to bear, but the lack of feeling, especially, presents a challenge to foot health that can further diminish your quality of life.
When people cannot feel their feet, they may develop sores and get cuts, scrapes and bruises, etc. without knowing it. Because diabetes compromises wound healing, infection can quickly set in. Sometimes infection gets so bad that the feet can no longer be treated; they must be amputated. Foot health complications can limit mobility, and if amputation is necessary, the loss of mobility is permanent.
Proactive Foot Care
Being proactive about foot health can help you maintain your active lifestyle and quality of life. To prevent foot health complications, people with diabetes, especially those with diagnosed diabetic neuropathy, should:
- Check their feet every day to look for cuts, bruises, sores, etc.
- Keep feet clean and dry.
- Properly care for any cuts or sores.
- Wear properly fitting shoes that allow adequate circulation and prevent rubbing or squeezing.
