  • TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS STATES THAT DIABETICS NEED TO MONITOR THEIR FEET DAILY

 

Conditions like diabetes can create other foot problems, says Dr. Andrew Shapiro, a podiatrist on Long Island. For example, patients with diabetes could develop diabetic neuropathy, in which they lose sensation on the soles of their feet. That increases the chances of infection, because people with that condition could break the skin on the soles of their feet and not realize it. “I had a patient who walked a whole day with his eyeglasses in his shoe,” Shapiro says.
Many people live with foot pain and do not seek medical attention until the discomfort is too great for them to endure, Shapiro says. “Use your head when it comes to your feet. If you have pain, get it looked at right away.”

Dr. John A. Hardy's Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics has a special interest in the treatment of diabetic patients.  Last year over 1,700 patients had their foot amputated due to diabetes in Ontario.  What is shocking regarding this fact is that 85% of these amputations could have been prevented if these patients were under the care of a Chiropodist, your first choice in high quality foot care.
