How to Avoid Foot Problems with Peripheral Neuropathy
Foot problems and neuropathy, specifically diabetic neuropathy, can often go hand-in-hand. Although there are ways to avoid acquiring foot issues that result in a poor quality of life if you know how to prevent the problems before they arise.
Diabetes alone can affect the feet and contribute to the development of diabetic neuropathy, which also results in foot problems. People suffering from diabetes often have too much glucose in their blood. When blood sugar levels are out of balance, particularly too high, for prolonged periods of time, serious problems can occur – including foot problems.
