Thank you
Hi,
The dark aspect of the feet of people suffering from diabetes reveals a poor blood circulation. The simple reason why they need to be careful about their feet and legs is because due to diabetes there is a numbing of feeling in feet so if they injure themselves it will lead to poor healing, which in turn could lead to gangrene and amputation.
