Foot care is a major issue for persons with diabetes (PWD), and some docs even advise that cutting our own toenails can be dangerous, since neuropathy may prevent us feeling anything if we accidentally damage healthy tissue. If the accidental injury then won't heal due to our diabetes, we've caused ourselves an unnecessary complication - possibly a very serious one.

For something as serious as grinding off one's toenails, seeing a podiatrist is definitely a safer option.
