Peripheral neuropathy, which can be caused by Diabetes, is a conditon in which the nerves in your peripheral system -- including those found in your hands and feet -- become damaged and destroyed.
With enough nerve damage, decreased feeling can lead to unrecognized trauma to the feet, resulting in wounds that may require reconstructive surgery to repair. Sometimes, Dr. Spiess will offer to release the nerve into bottom of the foot (tarsal tunnel release), in an attempt to increase feeling into the foot.
