People living with diabetes know how important foot care is to their health. When diabetics have a cut, wound, or sore on their feet or lower legs, they often don’t even know it due to poor circulation and nervous system damage. When diabetics let foot conditions go unnoticed and untreated, bigger problems can arise.

If you have a sore that isn’t healing well, or if you have swelling, redness, drainage, or a foul odor in your feet, you need to see a podiatrist immediately. Unfortunately, when people leave their diabetic foot conditions untreated, they are at risk for developing severe infections and risk losing their feet and legs. If you are living with diabetes—even if you don’t have a noticeable wound on your foot—you should see a podiatrist because you may need special insoles or shoes that can help your feet.
