Diabetic Foot Care

Preventative Care for Your Foot Health

While this saying applies to many situations in life, we often think of it when we advise our diabetic patients. As podiatrists who specialize in diabetic foot care in Sugar Land, Katy, and Houston, TX, we take the treatment of your diabetic feet very seriously. The sooner you come to us with a concern, the sooner we can address it and help you work toward optimal foot health.

Regular Checkups at the Podiatrist Are a Must for Diabetics

In addition to seeing one of our podiatrists when issues arise, we highly recommend that you be seen at least four times a year. Being seen this often allows us to get to know your unique feet and spot any potential issues before they become a problem.

A podiatrist experienced in diabetic foot care will thoroughly examine your feet at each appointment, noting any changes in their condition and implementing a customized treatment plan designed specifically for your feet and circumstances. Even if you have not noticed any changes, please ensure that you are seen by our podiatrist on a regular basis. Prevention is the key to avoiding foot problems related to diabetes.

The biggest threat to the health of your feet if you have diabetes is allowing a small problem to become a big one. This is why we stress that your minor foot problem may be more serious than you might think. For many diabetics, the nerves of the feet do not function properly. This causes a loss of feeling in your feet. Because of the lack of feeling and possible poor blood flow, a common foot ailment like a cut or blister can become infected.
