We provide a wide range of services for your diabetic foot, from preventive routine care of nails and calluses to surgery, custom orthotics, and shoes for your comfort.
What Causes Diabetic Foot Issues?
Many people with diabetes have issues with circulation and proper nerve function, both of which can contribute to a variety of foot-related problems. When normal nerve function is impacted, you may not be able to feel minor injuries like cuts, heel cracks, and blisters. When healing is slowed due to poor blood flow, even small breaks in the skin can evolve into serious wounds that can become infected.
Symptoms of Diabetic Foot Issues
Any or all of the following symptoms in a person with diabetes may be cause for concern and a trip to one of our podiatry centers:
- Pressure ulcers or sores
- Dry, cracked heels
- Athlete's foot
- Ingrown toenails
- Toenail fungus
- Minor cuts and scratches
- Charcot foot (weakened bones due to nerve damage)
- Plantar warts
How to Diagnose Diabetic Foot Issues
Diabetic foot issues are diagnosed using comprehensive patient history, a physical examination, a list of symptoms, and tests specific to the symptoms presented by the patient.
Non-Surgical Treatments for Diabetic Foot Issues
Non-surgical treatments for diabetic foot issues depend on the specific injury or ailment and can vary wildly from antibiotic ointment to pads and cushions to fungal creams.
