Monitoring your feet for changes is a critical part of managing diabetes.

This is because you may experience diabetic nephropathy, which is damage to the nerves because of unregulated high blood sugar.

You may experience your feet tingling like pins and needles or other symptoms like loss of feeling or sensitivity in your feet or problems walking.

If you have diabetes, you should see your doctor right away if you develop these symptoms because they can lead to complications such as infection and injury, which may result in amputation.

Maintaining adequate blood sugar levels helps reduce the risk of diabetic neuropathy
