PODIATRIST, DR. PAUL J. KIM STATES, "FOOT COMPLICATIONS SUCH AS AMPUTATION AND FOOT ULCERATIONS ARE COMMON CONSEQUENCES OF DIABETIC NEUROPATHY AND PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD).  THESE COMPLICATIONS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS MAJOR CAUSES OF MORBIDITY AND DISABILITY IN PEOPLE WITH DIABETES. EARLY RECOGNITION AND MANAGEMENT OF RISK FACTORS FOR FOOT COMPLICATION IS CRITICAL.  EFFORTS TO IDENTIFY AND TREAT THESE COMPLICATIONS EARLY IN THE DISEASE COURSE CAN PREVENT OR DELAY ADVERSE OUTCOMES."

PODIATRIST KIM ALSO STATES, "PATIENT EDUCATION ON DIABETES AND ASSOCIATED FOOT CONDITIONS IS A KEY COMPONENT TO OPTIMIZING CARE.  PATIENTS NEED TO BE EDUCATED ABOUT THEIR RISK FACTORS AND HOW TO APPROPRIATELY MANAGE THEM.  AT-RISK INDIVIDUALS MUST UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATIONS OF THEIR SYMPTOMS, THE IMPORTANCE OF DAILY FOOT MONITORING AND CARE, AND HOW TO SELECT THE APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR."

DR. HARDY'S DOWNTOWN TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS RECENTLY INVESTED IN 2 STATE-OF-THE-ART NC-STAT COMPUTERIZED DIAGNOSTIC DEVICES FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE OR (PAD).  THIS DETECTS THE EARLY STAGES OF NERVE INVOLVEMENT AND HAS PROVED VERY IMPORTANT IN THE DETECTION OF EARLY NERVE INVOLVEMENT IN DIABETIC PATIENTS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE REGARDING DIABETES OR ANY OTHER CONDITION, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.  REMEMBER, WE ALWAYS TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY!
