Diabetic Foot Care
Complications Experienced By Patients With Diabetes
If you have diabetes, you may have already experienced the common symptoms associated with neuropathy, which include tingling, stinging, weakness and even loss of sensation in your feet. These are all signs of nerve damage, which often results from diabetes, but some could also be symptoms associated with PA weather conditions such as very cold winters and warm summers — seeing a qualified Easton podiatrist helps you understand the difference.
Other common complications might include cracking skin and infection, which can lead to more serious consequences (including amputation) if you don’t seek qualified treatment.
Diabetic Foot Care At Twin Rivers Podiatry
Dr. Kaplan will take special care to provide the diabetic foot care needed to prevent serious complications. He will remove dead tissue around the foot to keep calluses from forming and cracking, so as to protect the vulnerable layers of skin that can become prone to infection.
Diabetic foot care at Twin Rivers Podiatry also includes preventive measures to keep feet healthy and protect against the kind of chafing that can result in ulcers. By providing you with the kind of inserts and specially designed diabetic shoes that protect your feet, we can help stave off painful complications that can accompany diabetes.
