Diabetic foot problems pose serious health concerns and are a common cause of hospitalization for diabetic patients.
Nerve Damage & Poor Circulation
Diabetes can cause serious complications because of associated nerve damage and poor circulation. Lack of feeling in the feet in combination with inefficient blood flow can allow even a small blister to develop into a serious infection in as little as a few days. Consequences can range from the application of antibiotics to hospitalization, or even amputation of the toe or foot.
We offer care and treatment for diabetic foot problems, including regularly scheduled nail trimming, treatment of corns and calluses, and care for diabetic ulcers.
Diabetes can be extremely dangerous for your feet and your overall health, so take precautions. Avoid serious problems by following proper prevention techniques, an integral part of our comprehensive diabetic care. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
