Diabetic Foot Care

According to the American Diabetes Association as of 2015, 9.4% of the American population have diabetes, 25.2% of seniors 65 and older have diabetes, and it is the 7th leading cause of death.  

These are startling statistics for a highly preventable and treatable disease.  

The excess sugar in the blood stream caused by diabetes leads to heart problems and damages capillaries that feed important structures leading to nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage, skin problems and foot damage.  

With loss of sensation and circulation to the feet, a diabetic may be unaware that they are injured leading to infection, hospitalization, and loss of toes, foot, or leg.  

If you are diabetic it is important to have a diabetic foot evaluation to assess your risk factors and create a schedule of follow up evaluations depending on the results.
