This video is about diabetic foot disease and why people with diabetes are losing their legs. There are blood vessels which carry good blood and ones which carry bad blood. The vessel which carries good blood is called artery. People with diabetes may develop blocks in the arteries of their legs resulting in gangrene which is death of the tissue. This is more common in people with diabetes, blood pressure, high cholesterol and in people who smoke or use tobacco in any form.
