How do I know if I'm a High Risk Diabetic?

The best way to determine if you are a high risk diabetic is to consult your doctor. Your doctor will be able to determine whether you are high risk. However, there are some signs to look out for:

1. You have neuropathy
2. You have poor circulation
3. You have a foot deformity such as buinons, hammertoes, fungal toenails
4. You wear inappropriate shoes
5. You have uncontrolled boold sugar
