Diabetic Foot Care

Foot care for diabetics is important because diabetes can be real problem for your feet – even at times VERY DANGEROUS! It is not uncommon for the nerves to become damaged in your extremities. A Diabetic may even lose feeling in their feet. What may seem like just a minor cut, stepping on something or even a simple blister can result in what turns out to be a very serious problem. Often the circulation of a Diabetic is lessened and a cut or injury to the foot or leg can result in a serious difficult to heal infection. In order to avoid this type of problem Diabetics should see a Podiatrist routinely.
