DIabetes causes "neuropathy" to the foot. This can lead to development of a very serious condition called "Charcot" foot. The charcot foot will result in deformity of the foot, and this will lead to development of "ulcers" of the foot over the bony prominence.
These ulcers can get infected and later ends with amputation.
