PODIATRIST DR. MATTHEW GAROUFALIS STATES, "DRY SKIN CAN LEAD TO MANY MAJOR CONCERNS IN DIABETICS.  CRACKING AND PEELING RESULT IN OPENINGS IN THE SKIN, ALLOWING BACTERIA OR FUNGI TO ENTER THE BODY. WITH BACTERIAL INFECTIONS, YOU MOST OFTEN FIRST SEE A REDNESS AROUND THE AREA OF THE CUT OR CRACK.  PEOPLE WITH DIABETES ARE AT A DISADVANTAGE BECAUSE THEY OFTEN WILL NOT FEEL PAIN, WHICH CAN BE AN EARLY WARNING THAT AN INFECTION IS OCCURRING.  AS IT PROGRESSES, YOU MAY ALSO SEE DRAINAGE FROM THE WOUND, AND IT MAY BECOME WARM TO THE TOUCH."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS TREATS A LOT OF PATIENTS WITH DIABETES AND RECEIVES EXCELLENT RESULTS.  WE ARE FULLY EQUIPPED AND CAN ALSO DO NERVE TESTING TO CHECK FOR NEUROPATHY WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF DIABETES.  

DIABETICS POSE A SPECIAL CONCERN FOR THE HEALTH CARE COMMUNITY AS THEY NEED TO BE CLOSELY MONITORED BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY LIFE-THREATENING SIDE EFFECTS WHICH EFFECT THE NERVES AND CIRCULATION.  DIABETICS ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF AMPUTATIONS OF THE LOWER LIMB.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
