Foot care amongst diabetics is incredibly important. Foot ulcers affect as many as 1 out of 10 diabetes sufferers, during the entirety of their diabetes. Even small ulcers on the foot can represent a serious risk: they may heal or develop into serious lower body infections, with the possibility of amputation at an advanced stage.


However, caring for your feet as a diabetic is not difficult, and it should be a prime consideration. Examine your feet yourself. Feet are somewhat like teeth. It is easy to ignore mild problems with them, hoping that they will go away. However, the best course of action is to regularly examine your own feet for the slightest sign of a problem. This is particularly important if you are suffering from poor circulation and numbness. If you have any cuts, grazes or bruises it is best to consult a Podiatrist

HAVE YOUR FEET EXAMINED BY A PROFESSIONAL Make sure that you receive a regular check up from a Podiatrist. In that way, any problem will be detected at an early stage and treatment should be simple and painless.
