If you have diabetes it is very important to protect yourself from diabetic amputation. Far too many people lose their legs and feet every year unnecessarily. One of the biggest concerns that diabetics face is nerve damage and peripheral neuropathy. These cause you to lose sensation in your limbs, making you more vulnerable to developing ulcers or non-healing wounds. Since you are unable to feel a problem you must depend on your other senses. This is why doing daily foot checks every day is crucial to the health of a diabetic. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, have it checked out. Practice good hygiene by washing your feet daily, trimming your toenails (always straight across), and wearing shoes or socks at all times.
Part of good diabetic foot care is having regular checkups with Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee. Call (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment at Foot and Ankle Associates in Sugar Land, TX.
