Diabetics Should Regularly Inspect Their Feet

Good foot care is essential for people with diabetes. Diabetes can cause nerve damage that leads to a loss of sensation in the feet, making it difficult to feel any sores, blisters, or injuries.
 
People with diabetes should regularly inspect their feet. The best time is immediately after a shower while drying your feet, or at the end of the day when removing socks and shoes.
 
If you notice a blister [or any wound, or redness], apply a clean dressing with an antiseptic, stay off the foot, and call to schedule to be evaluated by one of our expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, or Maspeth.
