Diabetes and Feet

If you have diabetes, foot problems are a common and potentially dangerous complication. All diabetics should have regular foot care aimed at preventing foot problems from developing. When a problem occurs early medical intervention is a must.

Diabetes presents a unique foot-care challenge!

Left to itself, diabetes causes nerve damage that can have a particularly detrimental impact on your feet. Not only do your feet have to endure an inordinate amount of stress, but they are also at the farthest reaches of your circulatory system. When nerve damage occurs, the health and safety of your feet is severely compromised.

For those living with diabetes including children, any of the following problems are potentially serious:

  • Ingrown toenails
  • Infections
  • Athlete's Foot
  • Warts
  • Corns & Calluses
  • Dry or Cracked Skin
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes

If you have diabetes don't hesitate, call
