Nerve damage, most often the nerves of the legs and feet, due to high levels of blood sugar or diabetes is called diabetic peripheral neuropathy. It causes loss of sensation, numbness, and pain in your hands and feet. This damage can be avoided by keeping the blood sugar level under control. Patients with diabetic neuropathy may not feel hot and cold sensations in their feet or hands, and might not feel pain after an injury to the hands or feet. So, diabetic patients should carefully examine their legs every day for any wound or ulcer. As the blood flow is inadequate to the extremities, such ulcers might not heal and can lead to amputation of the feet.
