  • PODIATRIST STATES THAT AMPUTATED DIABETICS HAVE WORSE PROSPECTS THAN CANCER SURVIVERS

INDIANA PODIATRIST, DR. JUSTIN HUDSON STATES, "A DIABETIC WHOSE LIMB IS AMPUTATED HAS A SURVIVAL RATE LOWER THAN THAT OF MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE IN REMISSION FROM CANCER.  THERE ARE A LOT OF DIABETICS WHO DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO PROPER WOUND CARE AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO END UP HAVING AMPUTATIONS.  A LOT OF WHAT WE DO IS SEE DIABETICS BEFORE THEY HAVE PROBLEMS.  IF THEY ARE LOW RISK, WE LIKE TO SEE THEM ONCE A YEAR.  IF THEY ARE HIGH RISK, WE WANT TO SEE THEM ONCE EVERY 60 DAYS.  WE FIT THEM WITH DIABETIC SHOES WITH SPECIAL INSERTS.  IF THEY HAVE CORNS OR CALLUSES, WE TRIM THEM DOWN."

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE TREAT A LOT OF PATIENTS WITH DIABETES.  WE HAVE INVESTED IN THE NT-STAT WHICH MEASURES PERIPHERAL NERVE CONDUCTION FOR THE EARLY SCREENING OF DIABETES AND PERIPHERAL NERVE NEUROPATHY.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE HAS OR THINKS THEY MAY HAVE DIABETES, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737 FOR HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE.
