Diabetic Neuropathy (Nerve Damage):
Your ability to detect sensations or vibration may be diminished.
Neuropathy allows injuries to remain unnoticed and untreated for lengthy periods of time.
It may cause burning or sharp pains in feet and interfere with your sleep.
Ironically, painful neuropathy may occur in combination with a loss of sensation.
Neuropathy can also affect the nerves that supply the muscles in your feet and legs.
This ‘motor neuropathy’ can cause muscle weakness or loss of tone in the thighs, legs, and feet, and the development of hammertoes, bunions, and other foot deformities.
CHARCOT FOOT is a complication of neuropathy because of diabetes and can lead to limb loss if not treated.
