Diabetic Foot Care - Podiatrist in Littlestown, Hanover and Gettysburg, PA - Todd Goldberg, DPM
Dr. Todd Goldberg of Complete Family Foot Care Center, P.C. discusses why diabetics must come in for a comprehensive foot exam to avoid the complications of diabetes.
Foot problems are a big risk in diabetics. Diabetics must constantly monitor their feet or face severe consequences, including amputation.
With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal. When your wound is not healing, it's at risk for infection. As a diabetic, your infections spread quickly. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet every day. Look for puncture wounds, bruises, pressure areas, redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts and nail problems. Get someone to help you, or use a mirror.
