Can diabetes cause a person’s feet to have a bad odor?
Requested by Age2B visitor

Diabetes left unchecked may be involved in a foot infection, which can certainly cause an odor. Any build-up of bacteria or fungus can do the same. Be sure your feet are thoroughly washed with soap before bed, inspect your feet for any cuts, splinters, etc. A yearly visit to a podiatrist is recommended for persons with diabetes.
