  • PODIATRIST STATES THAT DIABETICS MUST TAKE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES TO AVOID COMPLICATIONS

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ALAN FARBER STATES, "COMPLICATIONS DUE TO DIABETES ARE THE NUMBER 1 CAUSE OF LOWER-LEG AMPUTATIONS AND ACCOUNT FOR NEARLY 86,000 AMPUTATIONS PER YEAR.  DOCTORS ESTIMATE THAT ALMOST 50 PERCENT OF THESE AMPUTATIONS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED IF PEOPLE HAD TAKEN BETTER CARE OF THEIR FEET. I CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IS FOR A PERSON WITH DIABETES TO PAY RIGOROUS ATTENTION TO THEIR FEET. FOOT INFECTIONS ARE THE MOST COMMON ISSUE FOR A PERSON WITH DIABETES AND ARE MORE SEVERE AND TAKE LONGER TO HEAL THAN IN A PERSON WITHOUT DIABETES.  PROPER FOOT CARE IS SIMPLE AND INCLUDES THINGS LIKE USING AN ANTIFUNGAL DAILY, NOT ONLY TO HEAL, BUT TO PREVENT FUNGAL INFECTIONS, AND USING A MOISTURIZER DAILY TO HEAL AND PREVENT CRACKED SKIN."
