Health Tip: If You Have Peripheral Neuropathy
Always protect your feet

(HealthDay News) -- Peripheral neuropathy, common among people with diabetes, is characterized by nerve damage in the fingers and toes.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says people with peripheral neuropathy should:

  • Regularly inspect the feet for wounds and signs of infection, since feeling to the feet may be reduced.
  • Ask someone else to inspect the feet if unable to do so.
  • Seek immediate care for any foot injury.
  • Don't walk barefoot. Always wear sturdy, well-fitted shoes.
  • Keep blood sugar under control and follow a diabetes treatment plan.
