Diabetic Foot

People suffering from Diabetes, have a high sugar level in their blood, which can invite many disorders and serious complications.

Uncontrolled diabetes causes damage to nerves. If damaged nerves are present in your legs and feet, you might not feel any senses like heat, cold, and pain. This condition is known as sensory diabetic neuropathy. If you do not feel a cut or sore on your foot, it could get worse and become infected. Another condition is Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD). As diabetes affects the flow of blood, it increases the time for a sore or cut to heal. It increases the risk for developing ulcers or gangrene (the death of tissue due to a lack of blood).

Dr. Hiten Patel, a well-known vascular doctor in Ahmedabad and Vadodara can treat diabetic foot conditions to give relief to patients.
