Diabetic neuropathy is a loss in sensation of the feet. When a patient has decreased sensation the foot becomes very high risk and requires extra care. It is important to be checking the feet regularly. This can be difficult for some and we recommend using a mirror on the ground to check the feet daily for irritations and lesions.
