Prevent & Manage Diabetic Foot

Diabetic foot refers to a range of foot complications that occur as a result of diabetes, including ulcers, infections, and neuropathy. Prevention is crucial in managing diabetic foot, starting with maintaining good blood sugar control through proper medication, diet, and exercise. Regular foot care is essential, including daily washing, drying, and inspection for any signs of injury, redness, or swelling. Diabetic individuals should wear well-fitting, comfortable shoes and avoid going barefoot to reduce the risk of foot injuries. Checking the feet daily for blisters, sores, or cuts, especially in hard-to-see areas, such as between the toes, is crucial for timely intervention. Avoiding smoking and managing diabetes-related conditions, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, can contribute to overall foot health. Managing weight through a healthy diet and exercise can reduce the risk of foot problems associated with diabetes.
