DO YOU HAVE DIABETES?
If you do, you should know how important foot care is. Over time, diabetics risk
developing foot complications. When the nerves are damaged from chronic high blood
sugar, feet can become numb or painful with burning or tingling. This is called diabetic
neuropathy. When diabetes affects the arteries, circulation to the legs and feet may be
compromised. Either of these conditions may lead to serious problems including
ulceration, even amputation.
The key to prevention is early diagnosis of diabetes, and regular foot exams from a
podiatrist. Diabetics who receive regular foot care, including paring of calluses and
debridement of thick fungal toenails, are almost four times less likely to undergo an
amputation than those who do not seek treatment.
Dr. Lambert treats many diabetic patients in her office. She has a very user friendly
diabetic shoe program, which now includes boots for men and women, as well as sandals
for men. The newest additions to her footwear line are diabetic socks and slippers.
Protecting your feet with appropriate footgear is an important aspect of preventive care
for diabetics. FREE PARKING
