PODIATRIST PROVIDES FOOT CARE ADVISE FOR DIABETICS

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ROY CORBIN STATES, "CAREFULLY INSPECT EACH FOOT DAILY FOR INJURIES THAT COULD LEAD TO DANGEROUS ULCERS, ESPECIALLY IF THERE IS LOSS OF SENSATION IN THE FOOT.  PROBLEMS CAN CROP UP BEFORE YOU REALIZE IT.  KEEP TOENAILS TRIMMED, BUT DO SO VERY CAREFULLY AND NEVER CLIP THEM SHORTER THAN THE END OF THE TOE. CUT STRAIGHT ACROSS OR LIGHTLY FOLLOW THE NATURAL CURVE OF THE TOE.  USE AN EMERY BOARD TO SMOOTH AND AVOID ROUGH EDGES.  INSPECT THE INSIDES OF SHOES BEFORE WEARING FOR ANY ROUGH SPOTS THAT DEVELOP AND CAN LEAD TO A SORE.  FOR SOFT AND SUPPLE FEET, USE MOISTURIZER, BUT AVOID GETTING CREAM BETWEEN THE TOES WHERE THE SKIN IS VERY THIN."
