Join Us in Raising Awareness About Foot Health
Half of all people with diabetes have some form of nerve damage. Complications from diabetes include lack of circulation and feeling in the lower limbs.
Nerve damage (neuropathy) causes the loss of feeling in the foot. Neuropathy is common.
Know the Facts
