This can affect the feeling in your feet, it’s ability to regulate temperature and make it harder to move the muscles in them.
Diabetes can also affect the circulation and as a result make you more prone to skin breakdown and infection. If you suffer from Peripheral neuropathy aswell your are at even greater risk of infection becuase you may not be able to feel when you have damaged your feet before it is too late.
