Important Foot Care Advice for Diabetics

“Diabetes has become an epidemic in this country. If you have diabetes, it is essential that you have your feet evaluated by a podiatrist. Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system, and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores and non-healing wounds which may lead to ulcers. These wounds can develop into serious infections which can lead to amputations, loss of limbs, and even loss of life. 

With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing peripheral neuropathy. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can be pain, numbness, tingling, and burning sensation in your feet. I recommend that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation. I will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation of your feet, and determine if you have peripheral neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, I will design a treatment plan specifically for you. If you’re a diabetic, come in for a complete evaluation immediately so that we can provide you with the care you’ll need to minimize possible complications.”
