(Q.) What are the common foot problems seen in a diabetic
The common problems are:
- Skin Changes: Diabetes can cause changes in the skin of your feet. The skin becomes very dry and may peel and crack. The route cause is loss of nerves in your feet that control sweating. This dries up the skin making it prone to crack. This may lead to infections and/or ulcers. It can be avoided by applying cream on feet.
- Foot Ulcers: Ulcers occur most often over the ball of the foot or at the bottom of the big toe. Ulcers on the sides of the foot are usually due to poorly fitting shoes. Remember, even though some ulcers do not hurt, every ulcer should be shown to your doctor. Neglecting foot ulcers can result in infections, which in turn can lead to the loss of limb.
- Neuropathy: Diabetes causes nerve damage. Nerves carry sensation to the brain. Any sensations like pain, touch, vibration are carried by nerves from parts of body (like feet and hand). Nerve damage causes impaired sensations in the extremities. This is called diabetic neuropathy.
- Poor Blood Flow: Diabetes causes atherosclerosis (narrowing and hardening of blood vessel due to deposition of cholesterol). The narrow blood vessels result in poor blood flow in extremities including legs. This renders your feet less capable of fighting infection and affect wound healing. Exercise improves circulation and helps stimulate blood flow in the legs and feet.
- Amputation: Many diabetic patients have diabetic neuropathy and/or poor blood flow in limbs. This results in non-healing infected ulcer and also some may develop gangrene (blackening of body part). This requires amputation. Proper foot care coupled with regular check-ups can help save your feet.
