DIABETIC PATIENTS TEND TO HAVE POOR CIRCULATION AND WHEN COMBINED WITH NERVE DAMAGE THAT INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD THAT A WOUND WILL GO UNDETECTED AND UNHEALED UNTIL THE INFECTION CAUSES SO MUCH DAMAGE THAT AMPUTATION IS THE ONLY OPTION. "IT HAPPENS FAST," SAID DR. PAUL OURADNIL, A PODIATRIST AT RIMROCK PODIATRY IN BILLINGS.  " I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I HEAR, 'IT JUST STARTED WITH A LITTLE BLISTER OR CALLUS.'"

"WE ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED TO DO A DIABETES FOOT ASSESSMENT," HE SAID.  PODIATRIST OURADNIK LIKES TO SEE HIS DIABETIC PATIENTS EVERY TWO MONTHS.  HE TENDS TO CALLUSES OR OVERGROWN TOENAILS AND CHECKS FOR SORES.  HIS GOAL IS ALWAYS T PREVENT WOUNDS FROM DEVELOPING, BUT HE IS PREPARED TO MANAGE ANY SORES THAT DO DEVELOP.  THAT TYPICALLY MEANS REGULARLY OPENING WOUNDS TO ENCOURAGE FRESH BLOOD FLOW.

AT OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC WE JUST RECENTLY PURCHASED 2 NC-STAT FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF DPN OR DIABETIC PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY.  THIS THE LASTEST AND MOST ADVANCED TESTING DEVICE FOR IN OFFICE TESTING OF DIABETIC PATIENTS.  NICOLE TAM, B.Sc., D.Ch., WORKED FOR SEVERAL YEARS IN THE HIGH RISK DIBETIC FOOT AND WOUND CARE AT SEVERAL TORONTO HOSPITALS AND IS HIGHLY SKILLED IN THE TREATMENT OF DIABETIC PATIENTS.  SHE IS ALSO A  MEMBER OF THE CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF WOUND CARE.
