Diabetes and Feet Problems

Diabetes can often cause problems with circulation and nerve difficulties. This results in people frequently having problems with their feet.

Checking both feet regularly, and the spaces between the toes can help reduce or prevent problems in the future with the feet, due to your Diabetes. You should look for blisters, cuts, bruises or any other changes and signs of infection.

Wash your feet in a warm, not hot, water every day and all corns and calluses should be smoothed with a fine emery board. Moisturizing lotion is a good idea to use on your feet regularly, as well as trimming the toenails. When trimming your toenails, you should cut straight across the tip of the toes, not in a rounded shape.

With all these care tips, you will prevent foot problems related to Diabetes.
