If you are diabetic, it is essential that you establish a relationship with a podiatrist. Visiting your podiatrist regularly will help ensure your feet stay healthy. This way, you can stay on top of any early changes in skin texture, boney deformities, and neuropathy.
Diabetics have a much greater risk of amputation of a toe and leg as compared to other patient populations. But those who visit their podiatrist on a regular basis, significantly reduce their risk of needing an amputation.
If you are diabetic, you may experience complications of the disease such as neuropathy, decreased blood flow to the feet, and even diabetic ulcers. Well-made, properly fitting footwear and adequate blood sugar control, can help you avoid complications associated with diabetes, including unnecessary amputations.
