If you have diabetes, even if it is well managed, you are at increased risk to develop vascular disease. Vascular disease is the buildup of plaque and cholesterol in your arteries throughout your body.
Did you know that PODIATRISTS are often the first physicians to spot signs of vascular disease?
You should inspect your feet daily and make an appointment with your podiatrist as soon as you develop any foot pain, redness, or sores.
7 Simple Steps to Conduct Your Daily Foot Exam:
- Check for loss of sensation in the feet, called neuropathy.
- Examine skin for calluses, blisters, sores, excessive dry or cracked skin, or any other unusual conditions, especially between the toes.
- Look for signs of decreased circulation such as thin, fragile, shiny skin with loss of hair.
- Check the feet for extreme temperatures (excessive warmth or coldness).
- Inspect nails for thickening, ingrown corners, excessive length, and fungal infection.
- Inspect socks, tights, and/or pantyhose for blood or any discharge.
- Examine footwear for torn linings, foreign objects like rocks or small pebbles, improper fit, and irritating seams.
We're experts in Diabetic Foot Care. If you our a family member has diabetes, have a podiatrist check your feet at least twice a year for symptoms, such as loss of sensation, burning, or tingling. Be proactive! Prevent diabetic foot complications.
Call 341-FOOT or click Make Appointment for convenient online scheduling.
Remember: If you have trouble reaching your feet to complete your daily foot exam, prop up a mirror on the floor or ask a friend or family member to help.
September 22nd is Falls Prevention Awareness Day
The 9th annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day (FPAD) will be observed on Sept. 22, 2016 - the first day of fall. The event raises awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults.
Falls present a real and growing risk to older adult's health and independence - and to their very lives. One out of every three person over age 65 fall each year. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), among people who fall, 20 to 30 percent suffer moderate to severe injuries such as lacerations, hip fractures and head traumas.
We're here and focussed on bringing awareness of this public health issue to our community and to our patients. We hope to raise patient awareness for prevention and are here to help with interventions. We can teach our elderly patients about foot and ankle exercises, assist them with the purchase of safe footwear when necessary, and provide foot orthotics for stabilization. All of these suggestions are ideal for podiatric practice involvement in falls prevention, awareness and treatment.
For more information about Falls Prevention Awareness Day, visit the NCOA by clicking here.
To see our podiatrists about preventing future falls, call 341-FOOT or schedule an appointment online at 341foot.com.
