More Info on Foot Care For Diabetics
April 25, 2013

After I posted the last piece on Foot Problems in Diabetics 2 days ago, I received a couple of emails asking for information on preventing the problems.  So, here are simple steps to take care of your feet, especially if you are diabetic –

  • Keep a check on your blood sugar levels and maintain it within normal limits.
  • Check your feet everyday.
  • Wash them daily and keep them clean.
  • Keep the skin soft and smooth.
  • Wear well fitting shoes always.  Use socks or slippers at home, so that they are better protected at all times.
  • Protect your feet from extreme heat and cold conditions.
  • Visit a podiatrist (foot specialist) if you have any problems.

Do not neglect the health of your feet!
