Why Are Diabetic Shoes and Inserts So Important For Preventing Diabetic Ulcers? Podiatrist in Gaithersburg, District Heights and Rockville, MD - Jason Weber, DPM
Podiatrist Dr. Jason M. Weber of Lakeforest Foot and Ankle discusses why diabetics must come in for a comprehensive foot exam to avoid the complications of diabetes.
Ulcerations, infections and gangrene are the most common foot and ankle problems that the patient with diabetes must face. As a result, thousands of diabetic patients require amputations each year.

It takes 20 times more energy to heal a wound than to maintain a health foot.
