Diabetics must take extra special care of their feet. Swelling in the feet is a signal that there's a problem with circulation in the body, which can lead to neuropathy (nerve damage in the extremities). When this situation becomes serious, it can lead to amputation of a foot or leg. Diabetics should check their feet every day, visit their doctor regularly and have their feet examined to guard against this serious problem.
