Take care of your feet if you are diabetic

If you are diabetic, you would need to pay extra careful attention to taking care of your feet, as blood vessels and nerves can become damaged over a long period of time, causing a poor circulation to this area.

Many people suffer with the condition, including celebrities such as Tom Hanks, Salma Hayek and Nick Jonas, according to WebMd.

There are many things that you can do to take care of your feet such as avoiding going barefoot and always wearing comfortable shoes.
