Does diabetic neuropathy lead to amputation?


I have this numb feeling on the side of my left thigh, just above the knee. It sometimes feels as if someone is sticking pins and needles in me. It is not painful, but I just feel the tingling sensation from time to time. I'm wondering if it is because there is no blood circulation in that part of my body. Any thoughts or suggestions.
