Diabetics make up a big part of our practice. Patients with diabetes are typically recommend to see a podiatrist due to the fact that their feet are effected in ways such as poor circulation and neuropathy, which effects the nerves in the feet. This leads to a loss of sensation and sometimes even they develop numbness.
Patients with diabetes typically develop problems such as fungal nails, athletes foot, and extreme dryness of skin. We educate patients to check their feet daily for cuts or abrasions which can lead to an infection in diabetics, which can further lead to complications such as amputations. We provide services such as trimming of nails, trimming of calluses, and prescriptions or medications to keep their feet normally moisturized and maintained from any dryness.
