Important Tips for Monitoring Diabetic Feet

Diabetes is a disease that affects millions of people. Even celebrities like Halle Berry and Paula Deen aren’t immune to it. Here are some tips for monitoring diabetic feet to avoid further complications.

You are the first line of defense when it comes to taking care of your feet. If you suffer from diabetes, it’s important to check them daily to make sure everything looks normal. Nerve damage might make it harder to feel a problem, so seeing is everything.

Check every part of your feet, including the ankles and between the toes. If you aren’t able to see an area easily, use a mirror or ask someone to help you. During the process of checking your feet, you should also be grooming them. Trim your nails (straight across) and put on lotion (avoid between the toes).

In addition to checking your feet for abnormalities, you should also be protecting them from harm. Wear socks, shoes, or slippers on your feet whenever you are walking somewhere. You can step on something sharp even while you’re at home. Wear comfortable shoes that allow wiggle room for your toes, and change your socks if they get sweaty throughout the day.

For more tips on how to protect your feet, call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at 888-784-5335, or schedule an appointment online. At Foot & Ankle Associates in Houston, we are proud to help you take care of your feet in all conditions, so call today and get started on the healthy path to foot wellness.
