The Diabetic Foot: What You Need to Know

If you or a loved one suffers from diabetes, you may already know how important it is to take good care of your feet. Taking care of your diabetic feet and treating problems before they become severe is important in order to prevent diabetic ulcers, nerve damage, and numbness. All-In-One Foot Care Center's podiatrists can explain the importance of diabetic care and how it can improve your quality of life.

Taking Care of Diabetic Feet

Taking care of your feet is one of the most important things you can do when you have diabetes. You should visit your podiatrist at All-In-One Foot Care Center at least once a year if you have diabetes. Your feet will be examined thoroughly and your diabetes management will also be discussed. You can prevent any serious complications caused by diabetes with this information.

If you have diabetes, your feet may suffer nerve damage, which can make it difficult to detect open wounds. Diabetes slows wound healing, making you susceptible to infection. As soon as a wound appears, it should be treated. For this reason, it's important to check your feet daily for wounds and ulcers you may not be aware of.

Also, ensure that your toenails are properly trimmed on a regular basis. A podiatrist can help you trim your toenails properly if you're unable to do it yourself and prevent ingrown toenails. To ensure that your feet are protected and supported, you may also need custom shoe inserts.
