DIABETES FOOT CARE CONTINUED

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS AGREE WITH FOLLOWING THESE TIPS FOR DAILY CARE ROUTINE FOR DIABETICS.  CHECK YOUR FEET AND TOES EVERYDAY.  LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE TOP, SIDES, SOLES, HEELS, AND BETWEEN THE TOES.  WASH YOUR FEET AND TOES EVERYDAY WITH LUKEWARM WATER AND MILD SOAP.  STRONG SOAPS MAY DAMAGE THE SKIN.  TEST THE TEMPERATURE OF THE WATER WITH YOUR FINGERS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER ISN'T TOO HOT.  BURNS CAN OCCUR EASILY.  GENTLY AND THOROUGHLY DRY YOUR FEET, ESPECIALLY BETWEEN THE TOES.  INFECTIONS CAN DEVELOP IN MOIST PLACES.  YOUR FEET MAY BECOME VERY DRY AND MAY CRACK, POSSIBLY CAUSING AN INFECTION.  AFTER BATHING, SOFTEN DRY SKIN WITH LOTION, PETROLEUM JELLY, LANOLIN, OR OIL  DO NOT PUT LOTION BETWEEN YOUR TOES IF YOU HAVE SORES THERE.  YOU SHOULD ONLY HAVE YOUR NAILS CUT BY A SPECIALIST SUCH AS A CHIROPODIST OR PODIATRIST TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TRIMMED CORRECTLY.  TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW
