Regardless of what type of diabetes you or your loved ones have, type 1 diabetes (juvenile diabetes), type 2 diabetes (adult onset diabetes) or type 3 diabetes (gestational diabetes), paying conscious attention to foot care is critical.
A major complication of diabetes is damage to blood vessels. Blood vessel damage lessens the circulation of blood within the body creating many side effects such as dry skin, cracked heels and an inability to heal at a normal rate.
Another complication of diabetes is Autonomic Neuropathy. Autonomic Neuropathy causes the feet to sweat less, adding to dryness of the heels.
Issues with having Both Diabetes and Cracked Heels (Heel Fissures)
Cracks occur when the skin around the heels become thick and dry. The skin is less flexible and without proper moisturization, the heels split and crack.
A diabetic can actually feel the cracks occurring while they walk. They occur not only due to pressure from standing or walking, but simply from lack of moisture alone.
Left untreated cracks will deepen, bleed, become painful and can cause some pretty serious infections. Because there is an increase in the time needed to heal when blood vessel damage has occurred, diabetics must begin treatment right away to avoid infection and the potential for amputation. Without moisture and the right treatment to lock that moisture in, cracked heels will not be cured.
The American Diabetes Associated reported that in 1 year alone, about 73,000 non-traumatic lower-limb amputations were performed in adults aged 20 years or older with diagnosed diabetes. Learn more here.
