Event Details

The most common reason is that they suffer from nerve damage called neuropathy, which causes loss of sensation in the feet. These patients also suffer from poor circulation, which make your foot less able to fight infection and heal. Poor circulation can also change the shape of your feet or toes, which also cause problems. Other factors that contribute to the risk of developing foot problems:

Elevated blood sugars                  Hypothyroidism

Obesity                                            Hypertension

Alcoholism                                      Smoking
