Complicated infections can develop easily in the presence of wounds or ulcers and could cause serious deep infection, osteomyelitis or gangrene if not treated immediately. Both insulin and non-insulin dependent individuals should seek the advice of a podiatrist.
Diabetic patients are vulnerable to injuries or ulceration as they might be overweight, and have diminished sensation to pain. Simple skin infections such as fungus or warts may take longer to heal due to a weaker immune system.
