One of the most common complications of diabetes mellitus patients is foot problems such as foot wounds that do not heal, bacterial or fungal infections, and the most severe is tissue decay, so amputation is necessary. Problems in the feet of patients with DM caused by two things, namely:
- Poor blood flow. This occurs due to damage to blood vessels caused by high blood sugar levels in a long time. Disturbed blood flow causes the legs to not get enough nutrition, so the skin of the foot becomes weak, easily injured and difficult to heal in case of injury.
- Damage to nerves. This also happens because of high blood sugar levels in a long time. Nerve damage causes the sensitivity of a diabetic patient to the pain to be reduced, so that the patient is not aware when his leg is injured.
