Neuropathy means the nerve ends getting damaged due to insufficient supply energy to the nerve cells because of diabetes.It is also called peripheral neuropathy. The sense of touch in places like the feet gets impaired.You dot feel any pain.Any injury does not heal properly unless extreme care is taken and blood sugar levels are brought down.The constant presure we put on the foot also does not help in healing.
