Diabetes is a serious health condition that affects millions of people, and the effects of the blood sugar disease on the feet are horrendous. Diabetes often leads to nerve damage, a loss of sensation in the feet, and reduced blood circulation. That means that simple foot issues like ingrown toenails, corns, calluses and minor injuries can easily go overlooked and quickly escalate into serious infections and health issues, including amputation. Pumpkin has recently been shown to help lower blood glucose levels when ingested, which encourages glucose tolerance and increases the body’s insulin levels.
