Podiatrist, Dr. Alex Kor states, "people with diabetes should know that taking care of their feet is crucial. The problems caused by losing sensation or circulation in the feet and legs -- both well-known complications of the disease -- can be severe. But it's not just a matter of avoiding ulcers or amputations, medical experts say. It's also a matter of dollars and cents. So how much can you save by taking care of your feet? Try a cool $20,000 a year." Johns Hopkins podiatrist and diabetes expert Dr. Alex Kor also states, "That means visiting your healthcare provider for regular foot checkups and possibly having a podiatrist trim your toenails if you can't do so safely on your own."
