Fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis) account for more than 50 % of nail problems and are more common in people with diabetes. Approximately one in three people with diabetes are troubled with nail fungus at some time in their lives. Onychomycosis is much more than a cosmetic nuisance if you have diabetes. The outcome of not treating it can be far more serious as it increases your risk for other foot disorders and serious complications such as amputation.
