A diabetic foot is any foot that is suffering from an injury or condition that is a direct result of the patient’s diabetes. Diabetic feet can be afflicted with any number of symptoms. These include:
Diabetics are also much more likely to experience other typical foot issues like bunions, nail fungus, hammertoes, ingrown toenails and other conditions. And because patients often have a reduced ability to feel pain many problems that start out as minor injuries worsen after going undiscovered for a long period of time.
Visiting a podiatrist well-versed in diabetic foot problems is crucial for helping adults with diabetes avoid foot problems and other serious health concerns. The practitioners at Podiatrist Centers are ready to give you a comprehensive diabetic foot exam to keep your feet as safe and healthy as possible.
