    Over time, diabetes can cause nerve damage that leads to numbness in the feet. This can make it hard for people with diabetes to feel sensation in their extremities

    Diabetes leads to changes in the blood vessels, including arteries. In peripheral vascular disease, fatty deposits block vessels beyond the brain and heart.

    It tends to affect blood vessels leading to and from the extremities, such as the hands and feet, reducing blood flow to both.

    Reduced blood flow can lead to pain, infection, and wounds that heal slowly. If a person develops a severe infection, a doctor may recommend amputation.

    Symptoms

    Foot symptoms of diabetes vary from person to person and may depend on the specific issues a person is experiencing at the time.

    However, symptoms might include:

    a loss of feeling
    numbness or tingling sensation
    blisters or other wounds without pain
    skin discoloration and temperature changes
    red streaks
    wounds with or without drainage
    painful tingling
    staining on socks

    If an infection develops, a person may also experience some of the following:

    fever
    chills
    uncontrollable blood sugar
    shaking
    shock
    redness

    Any person with diabetes who experiences symptoms of an infection, especially on the feet, should seek emergency treatment.
