DR GARY STONES, NY PODIATRIST AND PRESIDENT OF THE NEW YORK STATE PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION DISCUSSES COLD FEET IN DIABETICS.  " IN MOST CASES OF PATIENTS WITH DIABETES THAT COMPLAIN OF 'COLD FEET', IT CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO ONE OF TWO CAUSES, VASCUL INSUFFICIENCY OR DIABETIC NEUROPATHY, I HAVE FOUND IN MY EXPERIENCE THAT IT IS OFTEN THE LATTER, BUT MAY HAVE A COMPONENT OF SMALL VESSEL DISEASE OFTEN SEEN IN DIABETICS."

IT MAY BE TEMPTING TO SIMPLY SOAK YOUR FEET IN HOT WATER, BUT THAT'S THE LAST THING YOU SHOULD DO.  PODIATRIST, DR. STONES CAUTIONED "NEVER SOAK YOUR FEET IN HOT WATER, THIS CAN LEAD TO THERMAL INJURY, AND IN SOME CASES HAVE DISATROUS CONSEQUENCES, ESPECIALLY IN SOMEONE WITH DPN AND UNDERLYING VASCULAR INSUFFICIENCY."  YOU SHOULD NEVER USE HEATING PADS OR HOT WATER BOTTLES, AS THESE CAN ALSO CAUSE BURNS.

OUR OFICE HAS RECENTLY PURCHASED THE NC-STAT, WHICH MEASURES THE SURAL NERVE TO TEST FOR DPN AND IS THE LATEST IN IN-OFFICE NERVE CONDUCTION.
