PODIATRIST PROVIDES COLD WEATHER TIPS FOR DIABETICS

PODIATRIST, DR. GEORGEANNE BOTEK STATES, "COLD WINTERS CAN BE A CHALLENGE FOR ALL OF US WHO WANT TO STAY ACTIVE.  FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIABETES MELLITUS, FACING  THE ELEMENTS CAN BE ESPECIALLY CHALLENGING AND SHOULD BE APPROACHED WITH CAUTION."

PODIATRIST BOTEK, MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF CLEVELAND CLINIC'S DIABETIC FOOT CLINIC SUGGESTS THE FOLLOWING TIPS TO KEEP FEET HEALTHY, "OUR SKIN TENDS TO GET DRY IN THE WINTER, WHICH CAN LEAD TO CRACKED SKIN.  BE SURE TO KEEP YOUR FEET MOISTURIZED BY APPLYING A GOOD SKIN LOTION, BUT BE CAREFUL NOT TO LEAVE ANY BETWEEN YOUR TOES.  PROTECT YOUR FEET FROM EXTREME TEMPERATURES (COLD OR HOT) BY WEARING SOCKS THAT FIT WELL AND HAVE A SOFT ELASTIC AT THE TOP.  WHEN ACTIVE, CONSIDER WICKING SOCKS THAT WILL KEP THE MOISTURE AWAY."
