Diabetes is known for being the worst disease that can do damage to your feet. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type ll. Type 1 is normally related to juvenile diabetes and is often a hereditary disease. The Type ll is more usually known as adult diabetes and is common in people who are overweight and is characterized by high blood sugar levels. There is also a pre-diabetes condition also known as Syndrome-X and this is related to high blood pressure levels, people having a high BMI and high cholesterol level often develop this form. This type can also be associated with the onset of neuropathy, which is the loss of feeling or a tingling sensation in the feet and hands. The most common foot problem that a person with diabetes can have is in developing foot ulcers. These ulcers will develop on the plantar or bottom of the foot. This occurs because the person cannot feel the bottom of their foot, when a sore develops it often goes untreated and can develop into a serious ulcer or infection. If this becomes really bad then losing a limb becomes a real possibility.
