DIABETES TAKES A HIGH TOLL IN REGARDS TO AMPUTATIONS OF THE FOOT IN CANADA WITH OVER 2000 TAKING PLACE IN 2011-12 ACCORDING TO A NEW REPORT IN THE CANADIAN HEALTH-CARE CONTEXT.  THESE AMPUTATIONS OCCUR MOST OFTEN IN TYPE 2 DIABETICS.  TYPE ONE DIABETICS WHO ARE BORN WITH THEIR CONDITION DUE TO THE BODY'S INABILITY TO PRODUCE INSULIN HAVE LEARNED THAT THEY MUST TAKE THEIR INSULIN AT THE RIGHT TIME AND DOSE IN ORDER TO LIVE, AS WELL AS WATCHING THEIR DIET VERY CAREFULLY.  IF NOT, THEY WOULD NOT BE ALIVE TO REACH ADULTHOOD.

TYPE 2 DIABETICS MOST OFTEN HAVE ACQUIRED THEIR CONDITION DUE TO NOT TAKING CARE OF THEIR DIET AND BODY IN THE FIRST PLACE.  THEY HAVE ALLOWED THEIR BODY WEIGHT TO INCREASE BEYOND THE CAPACITY THAT THEIR PANCREAS CAN PRODUCE INSULIN TO REGULATE THEIR BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL.  THESE PATIENTS ARE MUCH HARDER TO DEAL WITH FOR THE ATTENDING HEALTH CARE SPECIALIST.  MANY OF THESE AMPUTATIONS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IF THE PATIENT WAS VIGILANT IN MONITORING THEIR DIET, WEIGHT, BLOOD SUGAR AND AND RECEIVING PROFESSIONAL FOOT CARE FROM A PODIATRIST, CHIROPODIST OR FOOT SPECIALIST SUCH AS A FOOT DOCTOR.

AS OUR POPULATION AGES WE WILL ONLY SEE MORE AND MORE CASES OF TYPE 2 DIABETES BECAUSE OBESITY IS BECOMING AN EPIDEMIC.  EVERY PERSON WHO HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES OR PRE DIABETES SHOULD BE UNDER THE CARE OF A CHIROPODIST.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVISE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.
