Diabetic Foot Care

 

Foot health is a major concern for diabetics. Diabetes can be associated with nerve damage (neuropathy), the loss of sensation to the feet. Diabetes also decreases blood flow, causing injuries to take a long time to heal and increasing the risk for infection. Increased pressure due to something as simple as a callus can lead to a break down in skin, infection, and in severe cases, amputation.


It is essential to have your feet overseen by a qualified healthcare professional that can perform foot care with sterilized instruments. Have your feet properly cared for and monitored by a qualified health care professional.
