Diabetic Foot Care

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been living with the condition for years, if you have diabetes it is very important that you have your feet checked regularly. Uncontrolled diabetes can affect foot health in two ways: nerve health and blood flow. Having high blood sugar can damage the nerves in the body, and if nerves in your feet aren’t working well you may not feel pain, heat, or cold in a normal way. This can lead to problems walking and possibly injury. Diabetes can also impact blood flow, and reduced blood flow to the feet can make it hard to heal injuries and can lead to ulcers.

Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to help with foot conditions, and they understand the unique foot care needs of diabetic patients. Seeing a podiatrist at least once a year can help you manage and prevent foot complications from diabetes.
