Being concerned about your footwear, as a diabetic, is important. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you should visit one of our Texas offices to get your feet checked. Many diabetics will injure their foot and not feel the pain. This is a direct result of diabetic neuropathy and it’s also why you should carefully select your shoes.
When looking for shoes you should find supportive shoes that are not too tight. You should also regularly check your shoes to make sure that there is not any uneven wear and tear on the bottom. If you notice that there is uneven wear, you should visit a podiatrist to get your feet checked.
Many diabetics will adjust their walking posture, which will lead to the development of ulcers. To prevent this Dr. Vargas will analyze your foot and prescribe supportive shoes or orthotics that properly align your feet.
