It’s Halloween, which means it’s time for ghosts, goblins, zombies, and other creatures that go bump in the night…

We are now aware that smoking is harmful to health. However, diabetics have it far worse. In fact, smoking raises the risk of heart disease, stroke, renal disease, and erectile dysfunction. Why is diabetes and smoking a lethal combination? Both may harm the heart and the circulatory system. They may increase your blood pressure and cholesterol. Additionally, smokers have difficulty managing their blood sugar. And so, smoking increases insulin resistance.
One of the most frequent complaints I get from my patients is that their feet are numb. Furthermore, this is not the “typical” numb that sometimes affects many of us.

Although not painful, this is obviously not okay.
I’m hoping by now all of my readers are aware that it’s not a good idea to walk with bare feet outdoors. Shoes are a necessity outside, whether you’re running through the grass, entering the locker room, or getting ready to jump into the community pool. They guard you against cuts, scrapes, germs, and that most dreaded organism: foot fungus!
