PODIATRIST STRESSES NEED FOR FOOT EXAMS FOR DIABETICS

PODIATRIST DR. NICOLE DALESSANDRO STATES, "DIABETES IS INCREASING IN THE COUNTRY'S POPULATION, ESPECIALLY AS OBESITY RATES INCREASE THEREFORE SHE CONTINUES TO STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF DIABETIC FOOT SCREENINGS.  I'VE SEEN STATISTICS THAT SAY BETWEEN 3 TO 5 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION HAS DIABETES.  THATS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT, AND ALL OF THEM SHOULD BE GETTING FOOT SCREENINGS."

PODIATRIST, DALESSANDRO ALSO STATES, "I LOOK FOR POOR CIRCULATION, LOSS OF SENSATION, SKIN INFECTIONS, CALLUSES, AND MORE DURING HER EXAMINATION.  EARLY DETECTION OF THESE SYMPTOMS CAN PREVENT ULCERS AND FUNGAL INFECTIONS.  LIKE YOU GO TO THE DENTIST TWICE A YEAR, DIABETIC PATIENTS SHOULD BE SEEING A PODIATRIST.  WE WANT TO PRACTICE PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE AND CATCH THE PROBLEMS BEFORE THEY OCCUR."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SETS DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS ALWAYS PRACTICE CONSERVATIVE, PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE.  IT IS MUCH EASIER AND LESS EXPENSIVE TO KEEP SOMEONE WELL RATHER THAN TRYING TO HEAL THEM ONCE THEY MAY HAVE PERMANENT INJURY FROM SECONDARY REACTIVE CHANGES.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.
