Why diabetics should check their feet

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and research suggests that diabetics should pay more attention to their feet. Nerve damage from diabetes can cause loss of feeling in feet. Unattended cuts and blisters on your feet can become infected and even lead to amputation.

More research is being done to gather more information regarding the condition and hopefully determine a cure for such problems. Dr. Gere S. DiZerega explains more in the video above.
