THE IMPORTANCE OF TREATING DIABETIC FEET

How does diabetes involve the feet? It involves the feet by basically causing nerve problems, circulation problems, muscle and joint problems and infection problems -- and these cause other things: Numbness, burning, dry skin, muscle weakness, calluses, cold feet ...  These in turn can cause orthopedic problems, such as: Deformities, walking problems, hammer toes, high pressure areas in the bottom of the foot where you get the big calluses under the metatarsal areas, thus ulcerations and other skin problems. And dry skin is a common manifestation of diabetes. 

When a person has diabetes, over 70% of foot complications can be prevented, virtually 100% of them can, if they’re caught early enough. This is the key thing! Almost all diabetic foot problems can be prevented, if caught in time.  And when you say “caught early enough,” that means treating the problem when it happens, managing conditions like neuropathy, rehabilitating people once they’ve had an injury or fracture.
