It is advisable never to go barefoot if you have diabetes. Due to decreased feeling, or peripheral neuropathy, if you step on a foreign object and pierce the skin or cause an injury on the bottom of your foot, you may not feel it. In addition, if you do have a break in skin due to an injury, many times decreased blood flow and other factors in the blood may prolong wound healing. So don't take a chance by going barefoot; always wear the shoes prescribed by your podiatrist. For more information about diabetes and your feet, visit us at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic.
