Foot and Ankle – Diabetic Complications
Often people who suffer from diabetes experience a loss of sensation and feeling in their limbs. This lack of feeling can become a serious problem if pressure builds up, and wounds or ulcers develop and go undetected because the patient does not notice any pain. At times, patients require a limb amputation if these sores have become infected or pressure is restricting blood flow.
