Diabetic Foot Care Q & A

How does diabetes affect my feet?

Diabetes can cause a seemingly minor issue, such as a blister or ingrown toenail, to quickly escalate into a serious infection. Most diabetic foot problems are related to two factors:

Decreased sensation

Over time, diabetes may lead to nerve damage, called diabetic neuropathy, that often affects the nerves in your feet. Diabetic neuropathy can make you lose feeling so that a wound or blister remains unnoticed for too long. Without prompt treatment, a small wound can become infected.

Poor circulation

Diabetes also decreases blood flow to your feet. Because blood carries oxygen and nutrients, poor circulation can make it difficult for wounds to heal. Some wounds may not heal at all. 

What does diabetic foot care entail?

The team at Precision Podiatry provides individualized diabetic foot care to help you keep your feet healthy. Depending on your needs, diabetic foot care may include:

  • Fitting you for custom-molded orthotics or diabetic shoes
  • Preventive care services, such as nail trimming
  • Treating foot problems, such as ingrown toenails, athlete’s foot, and plantar warts

When you have diabetes, it’s important to seek professional treatment for foot problems instead of attempting self-care. Never try to shave a corn or callus or treat an ingrown toenail on your own. This can lead to infection. 

How can I prevent diabetic foot problems?

One of the best ways to prevent diabetic foot problems is to see your Precision Podiatry foot specialist for routine preventive care. They work with you to create a personalized diabetes self-care plan. 

In addition to keeping your blood sugar under control, you can take the following steps to prevent diabetic foot problems:

  • Check your feet every day for issues like cuts, sores, or discoloration
  • Wash your feet every day and dry them thoroughly
  • Protect your feet from heat and cold
  • Avoid walking barefoot
  • Wear comfortable shoes that fit well

Precision Podiatry participates in the Diabetic Shoe Program, which provides qualifying patients with a pair of diabetic shoes and/or orthotics. Your provider can tell you if you qualify for the program and help you with the paperwork.

For compassionate and cutting-edge diabetic foot care, call Precision Podiatry today.
