Diabetic foot care can become more complicated when a foot deformity such as a bunion is added to the mix. Due to decreased blood flow in the feet, a common foot condition such as an ingrown toenail can become infected. Damage to the nerves of the feet also make detection difficult since pain may not be felt. In the case of a bunion, the bony protrusion might rub against an ill-fitting shoe creating a blister or open sore. Any break in the skin is an open invitation for infection.

The treatment for bunions begins conservatively with changes in footwear and orthotics. However, if pain persists, surgery may be an option. For a person with diabetes, both options have risks. If the bunion is left alone, then the feet will have to be monitored very closely. While daily self-exams of the feet are always recommended, not all patients follow-through. Regular podiatric care must also be part of the care plan for every diabetic.

If bunion surgery is recommended, special precautions will be taken to monitor the patient’s blood sugar before, during, and after the procedure. The healing process will be closely monitored for progress and infection. After surgery, the feet will be examined for the occurrence of calluses due to changes in gait. New shoes and orthotics will be ordered, since the structure of the foot is altered with the removal of the bunion. This will help to reduce the likelihood that a bunion will redevelop.
