What causes diabetic swollen feet?

Three conditions may lead to this problem, including:

1. Diabetic neuropathy: This can cause insensitivity or a loss of ability to feel heat, pain or pressure on feet. If left alone, this problem may threaten patients’ life.

2. Poor blood circulation: High blood sugar is more likely to damage blood vessels throughout the body as well as legs and feet, to inhibit enough blood from flowing into various organs. Poor blood circulation in the feet can lead to swelling.

3. Loss of kidney function: Kidneys are in charge of maintaining fluid balance. If they are attacked by diabetes, they may loss their ability to filtering out excessive fluid. As a result, swollen feet appears easily because of fluid retention.
