Diabetic Foot Care

diabetic footDiabetes affects millions of people every year. Blood vessels located all over the body are damaged due to diabetes—even the blood vessels of the feet. Neuropathy, or nerve damage, can result from slower blood flow in the legs and feet. In diabetic patients, neuropathy is very important to monitor, as diabetics are at risk for developing ulcers.

Diabetic feet must be inspected on a daily basis. Diabetic foot care at home is possible if a patient is provided with instructions from their podiatrist, Dr. Haluska. Suspected wounds or ingrown toenials should also warrant an immediate visit to our office because these conditions can lead to infection. Gangrene is a serious problem for diabetics and can lead to sepsis and amputation in its worst cases. Early treatment and daily inspection of diabetic feet are keys to staying healthy. Call today to receive the treatment you need.
