Diabetes and Foot Care

Diabetics have special needs for foot care. One of the possible side effects of diabetes is nerve damage in the feet. This can cause a tingling or discomforting feeling in the feet, and even make your foot more susceptible to cuts and infections. On top of that, patients with diabetes can have restricted blood flow to the feet, making it difficult for them to heal wounds. If left untreated, gangrene can develop and the foot may need to be amputated.

Thankfully, diabetic foot problems can be prevented with proper care and management. It is recommended that you receive a checkup with a podiatrist or diabetes specialist at least once a year to ensure that the nerves and blood flow in your feet are still functioning properly. If you ever see abnormalities on your feet, including minor cuts or wounds, schedule an appointment with a podiatrist as soon as possible.
