This Saturday September 13th is the Safety, Health, and Wellness Expo on the Plaza. This promises to be an interactive and fun festival for the whole family, and if you’re lucky you might even learn a little more about taking care of diabetic feet. From safe toenail trimming to daily foot checks, your feet should be your priority when you are diabetic.

Cut toenails

Our feet take us everywhere we want to go. They are a vital part of our bodies, and we should all be doing our best to take great care of them. This applies even more if you have diabetes. Neuropathy can make it impossible to feel a problem, so it’s extremely crucial to check your feet daily for any wounds that may have occurred. Read on for more tips on taking care of diabetic feet.

Wash your feet daily with a mild soap that won’t irritate your skin. When you’re done, make sure your feet are dried as thoroughly as possible. Use a moisturizing lotion to prevent dry, cracked skin, but don’t put it between your toes.
When dealing with your toenails, remember to cut straight across, not in a curved fashion. You can then file any rough edges smooth. Never cut into the corners as this may result in an ingrown nail.
Wear shoes that fit your feet properly and offer support.
Wear socks that draw moisture away from your feet.
Check your feet daily for sores, bruises, blisters, hot or cold spots, and discoloration. If you can’t see your entire foot, use a mirror or enlist a loved one to help you. If you do happen to see a problem call off office immediately to avoid further complications.

If you have more questions about taking care of your feet when you are also battling diabetes, call Dr. Marco Vargas at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment at Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists in Sugar Land, TX. You can also request one online.
