Diabetic Foot Care

Proper foot care is important for everybody, but it is especially important for people who have been diagnosed with diabetes. The disease tends to damage nerves and reduce blood flow to the lower extremities, which leads to the loss of sensation and the ability to feel pain. That means that diabetics who practice poor foot care may not notice that they have a sore on an infection, meaning seemingly simple conditions like ingrown toenails, ulcers, corns, calluses and minor foot injuries could lead to the requirement of orthotics or even the amputation of a limb.


Luckily, proper diabetic foot care is quite simple once you know the basics. You can find a variety of articles to help you with diabetic foot maintenence as well as fixing and avoiding potential health problems created by diabetes in our Diabetic Foot Care section.
