Diabetes can be a very serious and life-threatening disease if not treated immediately and properly. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “there is an emerging epidemic of diabetes that can be traced back to rapid increases in overweight, obesity and physical inactivity.” The recent statistic suggests that patients be mindful of their health and focus on exercising more often. Common symptoms of diabetes includes frequent urination, constant thirstiness, being hungry often, wounds are not healing as quickly as they should be, blurry vision, discoloration on your skin, neuropathy, nerve pain or numbness. It’s important to be aware of any potential diabetic symptoms, as your feet can become prone to serious side effects of diabetes such as ulcers.

Diabetics must pay special attention to their feet to help prevent any complications. If you believe you are having problems with your diabetic feet, consult with Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will answer any of your foot- and ankle-related questions.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes affects millions of people every year. Diabetes can damage blood vessels in many parts of the body, including the feet. Because of this, taking care of your feet is essential if you have diabetes, and having a podiatrist help monitor your foot health is highly recommended.

The Importance of Caring for Your Feet

  • Routinely inspect your feet for bruises or sores.
  • Wear socks that fit your feet comfortably.
  • Wear comfortable shoes that provide adequate support.

Patients with diabetes should have their doctor monitor their blood levels because blood sugar levels play such a huge role in diabetic care. Monitoring these levels on a regular basis is highly advised.

It is always best to inform your healthcare professional of any concerns you may have regarding your feet, especially for diabetic patients. Early treatment and routine foot examinations are keys to maintaining proper health, especially because severe complications can arise if proper treatment is not applied.
