At Total Podiatry, we check your feet for diabetic problems as prevention is the key to having healthy feet! People with diabetes often suffer with foot problems that can quickly lead to complications. Since high blood sugar levels can damage blood vessels and nerves (neuropathy) in the feet, the diabetic patient must take proper foot care seriously. With a diabetic foot, a simple wound like a blister from wearing a shoe that’s too tight can cause a serious medical condition. Foot ulcers, ingrown toenails, blisters, skin breaks, as well as bruises, cuts and scrapes should be examined and treated. Anyone with diabetes should clean and inspect their feet every day while observing all the basic “dos and don’ts” to include:

  • keep feet warm and dry
  • wear proper fitting shoes
  • keep toenails trimmed
  • lower blood sugar levels
  • never walk barefoot
  • use pumice stone (calluses)
  • stop smoking
  • don't walk on foot sores
