SIMPLE ACTS CAN SAVE FEET OF DIABETICS
posted: May 03, 2019.
When a person suffers from diabetes, the chance of developing foot problems increases, which makes visiting podiatrists such as Dr. Brandi Johnson, of Tampa, FL more important than ever before. "The feet are the area of the body that are most commonly prone to injury and infection if a person suffers from diabetes. Diabetic foot complications are usually the result of neuropathy, poor circulation, and a lower resistance to infection," says Johnson.

"Some of the simplest acts can save a person's feet from damage. From shaking out your shoes and feeling inside them before wearing, to never walking barefoot or not smoking, it is important for people with diabetes to take every precaution available to ensure their health," said Dr. Johnson.
