PODIATRIST STATES THAT MINOR FOOT PROBLEMS CAN BE LIFE-THREATENING TO DIABETIC

PODIATRIST, DR. SCOTT KOCHENOWER STATES, "A SMALL CUT, BLISTER, CALLUS, OR SIMPLE CORN ON A FOOT CAN LEAD TO A LIFE-THREATENING HEALTH COMPLICATION FOR SOMEONE WITH DIABETES.  JUST 2 WEEKS AFTER AN UNNAMED PATIENT WITH DIABETES  WAS WARNED THAT CALLUSES ON THE BOTTOM OF HIS FOOT NEEDED PROPER ATTENTION, THE PATIENT ENDED UP IN SURGERY LOSING HALF THAT FOOT TO A DEEP DIABETIC ULCER OR INFECTED WOUND THAT DEVELOPED UNDER THE CALLUS."

PODIATRIST KOCHENOWER ALSO STATES, "THE DEEP ULCER HE FOUND UNDER HIS PATIENT'S CALLUS IS SOMETHING HE NEVER HOPES TO SEE AGAIN, BUT IT WAS WISHFUL THINKING ON HIS PART.  WE SEE IT ALL THE TIME.  THEY DON'T TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES,L SO THEY NEVER NOTICE IT."

HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE TREAT MANY PATIENTS VERY SUCCESSFULLY WHO ARE DIABETICS.  IN FACT AT THIS VERY MOMENT ALL OF MY FOOT SPECIALISTS AND ASSISTANTS ARE UNDERGOING TRAINING ARD REFRESHING USING THE NC-STAT WHICH IS A COMPUTERIZED DIAGNOSTIC DEVICE WHICH MEASURES DIABETIC NEUROPATHY OR PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD).
