Loss of sensation in the feet of diabetes patients linked to cardiovascular disease, stroke

6 agosto 2014

Loss of sensation in the feet, a result of diabetes, may be a predictor of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and strokes, researchers say. Diabetes, which affects 3.7million people in the UK, can cause damage to a person’s blood vessels and nerves, especially if their blood sugar is poorly controlled, leading to poor circulation and loss of sensation in the feet, known as peripheral neuropathy.
