No one knows why people develop diabetes, but once diagnosed, the disease is present for life. Diabetic Feet is a hereditary disorder, and certain genetic indicators are known to increase the risk of developing diabetes.

This type of Diabetic Feet occurs most frequently in children and adolescents, and is caused by the inability of the pancreas to produce the insulin needed for survival. Type 2, previously called noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or adult-onset diabetes, affects the other 90-95 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes, many of which are controlled by oral medicine or insulin injections. The vast majority of those people (80 percent or more) are overweight; obesity itself can cause insulin resistance.
