Diabetic foot is a common complication of diabetes that occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the nerves and blood vessels in the feet. This can lead to reduced sensation and circulation in the feet, increasing the risk of foot injuries and infections. Symptoms of diabetic foot include pain, numbness, tingling, and changes in skin color or temperature. Treatment may include keeping the feet clean and dry, wearing proper footwear, and monitoring blood sugar levels. In severe cases, a doctor may recommend surgery to remove infected tissue or repair damaged nerves or blood vessels.
