Diabetic Foot Care
According to recent statistics, 28 million Americans are living with diabetes. Approximately half of those will develop neuropathy (nerve damage) or poor circulation in their feet that can lead to ulcers, infections and amputations. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of amputations in the United States. Proper, timely care of your feet can drastically reduce the odds of having an amputation.
Inspect your feet daily; top, bottom and in between toes for any problems. With neuropathy, you may not feel if a problem is developing such as a blister or ingrown nail. Left unnoticed or ignored, normally simple problems like corns, calluses, ingrown nails, fungal toenails hammertoes and bunions can rapidly progress to serious complications. If you find any areas of concern, please call us for an examination.
