In serious situations it can lead to death, by patients that refuse medical care and others that develop an undesirable autonomic nervous system reaction response known as vasovagal reaction which can be triggered by needle puncture. A vasovagal reaction can also manifest itself as syncope, where physiologically it is characterized by a slow on heart rate and drop of blood pressure, resulting in a lack of blood supply to the brain causing fainting and confusion. In patients with arteries compromised by atherosclerosis the non-efficient blood supply can lead to myocardial infarction.

Reactive arthritis is a very painful type of inflammatory arthritis, a joint disease caused by inflammation. Reactive arthritis occurs as the result of an infection that is caused by certain bacteria. These bacteria are most often found in the genitals or the bowel, but they can also affect the heels, toes, fingers, lower back, and joints, especially knees or ankles. Reactive arthritis tends to occur most frequently in men ages 20 to 50. A common type of reactive arthritis is Reiter syndrome, which causes redness, swelling and pain in the knees, ankles, and feet, and inflammation of the eyes and urinary tract.

The diabetic foot is a notorious condition that podiatrists treat frequently. Multi-factorial in its development, the diabetic foot is a complex complication of diabetes mellitus1. Characteristically, the condition results in an increase in pressures acting on the plantar aspect of the foot, resulting in tissue destruction1. Alterations in anatomical structures force the foot to adapt in order to maintain some function, and in doing so, alters the biomechanics of the lower limb1. Pathological changes become increasingly prevalent and prevention of tissue destruction becomes exceedingly difficult1.

Buerger 's disease is are rare disease also known as thromboangiitis obliterans. This rare disease causes acute inflammation and thrombosis in the arteries and veins found on the body 's upper and lower extremities.

Townsend Harris High School Maryum Begum Band 4: Anatomy & Physiology 12/16/15 Diabetes Type I Type I diabetes is a chronic disease in which the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. This means that an individual who has type I diabetes cannot produce their own insulin. Insulin is essential for the body to break down the sugar, glucose, to convert it to energy.
