Don't treat your own feet without consulting our office! Many patients with diabetes also have neuropathy, or a loss of feeling in their feet. This may lead to injury when performing tasks as simple as cutting one's own nails. A small accidental cut in the toe or foot of a diabetic can go unnoticed and become infected very quickly.
It is important to protect your feet and take preventative measures. We trim nails and ensure the skin is intact. In addition, we also provide foot examinations that address bunions and curled toes.
