PREVENTATIVE CARE CAN LESSEN DIABETIC FOOT COMPLICATIONS

DR. ROBERT DEBIEC, A PODIATRIST FROM OHIO STATES, "PROPER FOOT CARE IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF MANAGING DIABETES.  ALL DIABETICS, REGARDLESS OF THEIR TYPE AND STAGE, CHECK THEIR FEET DAILY AND VISIT A PROFESSIONAL PODIATRIST AT LEAST TWICE A YEAR.  A LOT OF TIMES THE NAILS WILL BECOME THICKENED OR INGROWN.  THE PATIENT CAN'T FEEL THEM.  THEY WERE WEARING THEIR SHOES ALL DAY LONG AND IT'S CAUSING PRESSURE ON THE NAIL, PUSHING IT IN THE SKIN, DEVELOPING AN INFECTION. DIABETIC FOOTWEAR CAN CUT DOWN ON INFECTIONS.  BY TAKING PREVENTATIVE MEASURES EARLY, PATIENTS MAY BE ABLE TO AVOID SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS DOWN THE ROAD.  WE FIND OUT BY VASCULAR TESTS THAT THEY HAVE POOR CIRCULATION BECAUSE OF THE INFECTION.  SOMETIMES, IT WILL GET INTO THE BONE AND THEN THE PATIENTS NEEDS AN AMPUTATION.  SO, WE ARE TRYING TO PREVENT ALL OF THOSE THINGS."

ACADEMY FOOT CLINICS HAS HAD EXCELLENT SUCCESS AT TREATING DIABETIC PATIENTS.  DUE TO OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CONSERVATIVE CARE ALWAYS THIS FITS IN VERY WELL WITH KEEPING  DIABETIC PATIENTS HEALTHY.
