If you are diabetic even your feet are susceptible to diabetic dilemmas. In fact, more than 60% of lower limb amputations occur in people with diabetes. Poor blood flow, high glucose levels and nerve damage are all diabetic repercussions that can lead to hospitalization. Luckily, regular visits to your podiatrist can keep an eye out for infections and ulcers. In between visits you can care for your feet by keeping them clean and dry, moisturized if cracked and protected with the proper shoes.*
If you are diabetic, visit your podiatrist regularly! By partnering with your podiatrist you can care for your feet and reduce your risk for diabetic complications.
