PODIATRIST, DR. JEFFREY CAR STATES, "A DIABETIC PATIENT AT GOOD SAMARITAN CLINIC QUIT SMOKING AND MADE CHANGES IN HIS DIET, BUT HEALING OF THE DIABETIC ULCER ON HIS FOOT REMAINED A CHALLENGE.  IF YOU HEALED IT, IT WOULD OPEN UP TWO WEEKS LATER BECAUSE OF THE PRESSURE ON HIS FOOT.  THE SOLUTION PROVED TO BE SPECIAL INSERTS, CALLED PRESSURE OFF LOADING INSERTS, FOR THE MAN'S SNEAKERS.  THEY TOOK PRESSURE OFF THE SORE, HELPING IT TO HEAL.  IF THE FOOT ULCER HAD BECOME MORE INFECTED, THE MAN MIGHT HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT SURGERY, PERHAPS AMPUTATION."

DIABETES IS A VERY SERIOUS DISEASE AND ONE WHICH IS GROWING IN NUMBERS.  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT A DIABETIC PATIENT BE UNDER TO CARE OF A FOOT SPECIALIST SUCH AS A PODIATRIST OR CHIROPODIST.  THE DISEASE HAS A PREDILECTION FOR THE LOWER LIMB, IN PARTICULAR, THE 4TH LUMBER NERVE WHICH CAUSES DECREASED SENSATION AND BLOOD SUPPLY.  THESE FACTORS MAKE INJURIES HARDER TO TREAT DUE TO THE REDUCED HEALING RESPONSE OF THE LOWER LIMB.

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE TREAT A LOT OF DIABETIC PATIENTS VERY SUCCESSFULLY.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
