Diabetic foot

The three main types of diabetes type 1 diabetes mellitus, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and gestational diabetes occur when the body cannot produce enough amount of insulin hormone or it cannot effectively use insulin.

Insulin acts as a key that allows body cells for absorbing glucose and using it as energy. When we eat, our body processes all starch and sugars turning them into glucose, a basic fuel for body cells. Insulin carries glucose to the cells. When glucose accumulates in the blood instead of entering the cells, it may cause diabetes complications.

People with diabetes are more likely to develop different problems in their feet. Even the simplest problems such as a blow, a blister, etc. may worsen leading to severe complications. They usually occur when the diabetic person suffers from a condition called neuropathy, bad circulation, and changes in feet or toes shape.

Diabetic foot, according to the International Consensus on Diabetic Foot, is an infection, ulceration, or disruption of deep tissues related to neurological disorders and different degrees of peripheral vascular disease in lower limbs that affects patients with diabetes mellitus.
