    The excessive amount of glucose in the blood for a long time can cause diabetes problems. This high blood glucose can damage many parts of the body, for instance the heart, blood vessels, eyes, and kidneys and feet. The increase blood glucose from diabetes causes two problems that can hurt your feet:
    1. Nerve damage. In this problem the nerves of the patient’s legs and feet damage seriously. Patient might not feel pain, heat, or cold in their legs and feet. A sore or cut on their foot may get worse because they do not know it is there. This lack of feeling is caused by nerve damage, also termed as diabetic neuropathy. This type of Nerve damage can lead to a sore or an infection.
    2. Poor blood flow. The second problem of feet occurs when not enough blood flows to the patient’s legs and feet. Such type of poor blood flow makes it hard for a sore or infection to heal up early. This problem is termed as peripheral vascular disease and its second name is called PVD. When patients have diabetes then smoking makes blood flow problems much worse.
    In order to protect your feet wash your feet in warm water every day and examine at your feet every day to check for cuts, sores, blisters, redness, calluses, or other problems. In case if your skin is dry, rub lotion on your feet after you wash and dry them.
