It’s important for diabetic patients to keep feet moisturized and healthy, which this intense moisturizer promises.

According to the CDC, approximately 29.1 million people, or 9.3 percent of the American population has diabetes. From this 29.1 million, only 21.0 million Americans are diagnosed. Those with diabetes often experience other health complications and risk factors including cardiovascular disease, stroke, heart attack, blindness and neuropathy.

People diagnosed with diabetes are also susceptible to foot problems, as the disease often restricts blood flow to the feet. Therefore, it’s important for diabetics to maintain good foot health. This includes inspecting feet each day for changes, keeping them protected and free of sores and calluses, and also using creams to promote healthy feet. That’s why Dr. John A. Hardy's Foot Clinic,  Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinic is now offering 40 percent urea cream that is safe to use on diabetic feet.

For those with diabetes, foot care is of the upmost importance. This means even taking the necessary measures to prevent dry skin. As dry skin sets in, patients are more likely to scratch the itchy patches of dryness, which leave the skin open and vulnerable to infection. Therefore those with diabetes are strongly encouraged by the Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinic, and by the American Diabetes Association, to use proper moisturizers to prevent dryness and chapping that occurs due to the cold and other elements.

This urea cream offered at Dr. John A. Hardy’s Foot Clinic is easy-to-apply and is used to primarily treat and soften severely dry, thick and callused feet, particularly around the heels. This active ingredient is a naturally occurring moisturizer within the human skin and is effective in helping the skin retain water, strengthening the moisture barrier within the feet. With the consistent use of this intense moisturizing cream, patients will see a significant different in the softness and smoothness of their feet. Several studies have proven the effectiveness of urea cream on treating diabetic feet compared to other products.

With September already well underway, Dr. John A. Hardy notes that winter isn’t too far behind so it’s never too early to prevent dry feet, particularly in diabetic patients who must maintain healthy feet to prevent complications. To add to their foot care line, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinic now offers an easy-to-use urea stick, which makes it easy for patients to spot treat dry and problem areas with no mess.

For diabetic patients, it’s vitally important to take foot health seriously, and the urea cream Dr. John A. Hardy offers his patients is not only diabetic-safe but also effective in treating skin dryness. In the coming months, Dr.  John A.Hardy will soon be offering the KeryFlex Nail Restoration System, which allows the Clinic to fully restore unsightly toenails due to ingrown nails, fungus and trauma.
