Diabetic Foot Care

For people with diabetes, foot care is important. Proper diabetic foot care can help to prevent many serious issues often suffered by those living with diabetes.

Risks and complications include:

  • High blood sugar – which can cause nerve damage in the feet, resulting in reduced feeling (neuropathy), which makes it hard to notice injuries or damage to the foot. High blood sugar can also cause dry, cracked skin, increasing risk for infection.
  • Narrow blood vessels – causing reduced blood flow to the feet, contributing to the slow healing of sores, wounds, and injuries.

The following steps can be taken to help prevent common diabetic foot issues:

  • Look closely at your feet and examine them each day
  • Keep your feet clean and dry
  • Moisturize your feet daily to help combat dry, cracked skin
  • Trim toenails straight across to reduce instances of ingrown toe nails, which can lead to infection
  • Protect your feet with proper shoes and socks to reduce likelihood of injuries
