Individuals with diabetes must be vigilant about their foot care. Why? Diabetes can cause people to have poor circulation and nerve damage, especially in their feet. The nerve damage in the feet (neuropathy) prevents the person from feeling the cut or wound when they get hurt, and the poor circulation prevents the wound from properly healing. Diabetics who have a small cut or scrape on the foot are at risk of infection and developing foot ulcers that can lead to foot amputations. Sol Foot & Ankle Centers regularly helps individuals with diabetes; we treat people who are already suffering from foot conditions, as well as those who simply want to take preventative action through the use of orthotics or other measures.
