Diabetic foot ulcers can often lead to infection. Upwards of 15% of all diabetic patients develop ulcers and many of those people require additional treatment and hospitalization for the ulcers on their foot. Poor circulation in your foot makes your body and feet less able to fight infection and heal. Calluses on your feet turn to ulcers quickly and can lead to more serious conditions and often require therapeutic shoes or inserts at the minimum. Ingrown toenails also frequently result in infection.
