Posts for tag: Diabetic Foot Complications

Serious foot complications can be part of diabetes. For instance, nerve damage – or neuropathy – is a loss of sensation that can occur due to uncontrolled diabetes.

Neuropathy can then result in calluses, which can lead to diabetic ulcers. In severe cases, this can also cause foot infections that may even lead to amputations if not managed in a timely manner.

Other foot problems caused by diabetes can include:

Hammertoe Deformity‘s due to a neuropathy induced imbalance with tendon and  muscle. 

Poor circulation that may cause irreversible damage such as gangrene 

Skin disorders like cracked skin or fungal infections due to an immunocompromised state.

If you are a diabetic and suspect any foot issue, it is imperative that you call one of our Advanced Podiatry offices of Manhasset, Huntington, Maspeth, Plainview, Coram, Williston Park, or Mineola. And one of our award-winning, expert podiatrists will be happy to evaluate your problem and discuss the best treatment options with you. 

Remember, as Benjamin Franklin said, "an once of prevention is worth a pound of cure", so a biannual diabetic foot evaluation by one of our expert Advanced Podiatry podiatrists is prudent.
