Posts for tag: The Pandemic and Diabetic Foot Ulcers

By Dr Arden Smith
November 24, 2020

Half of all people with diabetes will develop diabetic neuropathy, which causes numbness as a result of dying nerves, usually in the feet. With this condition, people may develop a foot sore without knowing it. If the wound becomes infected, this may result in the foot having to be amputated. In fact, there is an amputation around the world every 20 seconds due to foot ulcers caused by diabetes.
 
During the pandemic, the expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, and Maspeth are urging patients to seek regular diabetic foot check ups because foot sores can creep up silently and quickly. The expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry have found that regular diabetic foot examinations are often effective in stopping diabetes-caused foot infections.
