What is Neuropathy?
People with diabetes are at risk for complications associated with having high blood sugar levels. One such complication is nerve damage (neuropathy). The most common type of neuropathy affects the nerves in the feet.
Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy include:
- numbness in the feet and toes
- sharp pains in the feet that are worse at night
- tingling or burning sensations in the feet
- muscle weakness
- foot deformities and ulcers
Neuropathy not only causes discomfort, but you're also more likely to develop an injury such as a foot ulcer. You may not feel a cut or a pebble in your shoe. When you continue to walk on a small cut or a blister without knowing, it can get worse, become infected, and lead to more serious issues. This is why it's so important to wear diabetic socks every day to protect your feet.
