Diabetic Foot Problems

Did you know that diabetic foot wounds are the leading cause of hospitalization for diabetics?

Diabetic feet are vulnerable to the same foot problems as other feet: blisters, bunions, calluses, corns, athlete's foot and other common foot conditions. Diabetic feet are simply less able to meet the challenge of maintaining healthy feet when confronted with external damage and environmental stresses. It is important to remember that severe and disabling diabetic foot problems are not inevitable. Even if you have suffered from diabetic foot complications in the past, controlling your blood sugar level, wearing diabetic shoes and socks at all times, using diabetic foot care products as needed, and practicing proper diabetic foot care techniques on a daily basis can improve and preserve the health of your diabetic feet.
