One Small Scratch is All it Takes
Most of us already know the basics of diabetes. It’s a chronic disease that you can be genetically predisposed to, where your pancreas fails to produce sufficient insulin. It also causes decreases circulation and produces excessive sweating, two things that can be specifically damaging to your feet. If you’re diabetic and have been feeling a numbness or tingling in your feet, it’s time that you scheduled a consultation with one of our podiatrists at Advanced Foot & Ankle. Delaying treatment for this condition can result in long-term consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life. Contact a medical professional if you:

- Feel as though the circulation in your feet is hampered
- There is a distinct feeling of tingling present as you walk or sit
