PODIATRIST STATES THAT DIABETICS MUST BE PROACTIVE TO PREVENT AMPUTATIONS

PERHAPS THE MOST DREADED COMPLICATION ARISING OUT OF DIABETES IS A FOOT WOUND THAT LEADS TO AMPUTATION.  "EVEN THOUGH MANY DIABETICS BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF, THINKING THAT IS THE END, THAT THEY HAVE HANDLED THE PROBLEM," SAYS DR. STEVEN GROSS, "OFTEN IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING.  AT FIRST, IT MAY BE JUST A TOE OR TOES, BUT IF GREAT CARE IS NOT TAKEN, FURTHER AMPUTATIONS CAN FOLLOW."

PODIATRIST GROSS'S OBSERVATION, HE STRESSED, IS NOT INTENDED TO FRIGHTEN DIABETICS, RATHER TO UNDERSCORE THE IMPORTANCE OF MANAGING THEIR DISEASE AND BEING PROACTIVE IN THE CARE OF THEIR FEET.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPOODISTS, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT DIABETIC PATIENTS BE UNDER LONG TERM CARE OF A FOOT CLINIC THAT DEALS WITH DIABETICS SO THEIR CONDITION CAN BE CONSTANTLY MONITORED TO PREVENT COMPLICATIONS AND AMPUTATIONS.
