Diabetic Foot Management

Regular foot exams are a critical step in avoiding diabetic foot complications and amputation

 

Approximately 30 million people (or 1 out of every 11 people) have diabetes in the United States today. Often, the feet can reveal initial warning signs such as loss of feeling, redness, tingling, swelling, or non-healing wounds. Making at least two appointments a year to have your feet examined is a critical step in avoiding diabetic foot complications and amputation.
