Diabetes is caused by chronically high blood sugar levels. Simply put, the body lacks the ability to produce insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar levels. Diabetes is particularly harmful to the feet because it limits the body’s ability to fight off infections that can affect the extremities.
Flat feet is a common condition that many Americans deal with. Typically, flat feet develop during the infant and toddler years. This happens when the longitudinal arch of the foot is not developed before the child starts walking. Average feet have an arch that continues to develop through childhood and is completely formed by adulthood.
Flat feet can results in ankle bones that lean inward more toward the center line of the foot, known as pronation. Flat feet are noticeable in children with shoes that lean toward the other foot. Flat feet may not cause problems or pain with the feet, although any sign of pain in the ankle, lower leg or foot should be evaluated by a qualified podiatrist.
