Diabetic Foot Care & Treatments in Lakewood, CA
Experienced Podiatry Care for Your Well-Being
If you have diabetes, taking care of your feet is extremely important. A seemingly small problem can quickly become a big problem when you’re diabetic because you may not be able to feel if your foot is injured. Our knowledgeable specialist offers innovative diabetic foot care and treatments in Lakewood, CA, to help you avoid and treat diabetic foot issues.
Why Diabetic Foot Care?
If you are diabetic, your feet require special care. Aside from trying to avoid an injury to the foot, there are ways to help prevent serious diabetic foot issues, such as Charcot foot and ulcers. The biggest threat to the health of your feet if you have diabetes is allowing a small problem to become a big one — your minor foot problem may be more serious than you think. For many diabetics, the nerves of the feet do not function properly, causing a loss of feeling in the feet and poor blood flow. This can cause a common foot ailment like a cut or blister to become infected.
It’s critical that individuals with diabetes have all foot problems evaluated and treated promptly. We can help if you see or suspect any of the following foot issues:
- Nail fungus
- Athletes foot
- Dry, cracked skin
- Ingrown toenails
- Sores or ulcers
- Cuts or scratches on the feet
- Plantar warts
- Charcot’s foot
For diabetic foot care, we highly recommend that you get checked at least 3-4 times every year to make sure your feet are in good condition. Having your feet checked often enables us to really get to know you, your condition, and your feet, which allows us to be able to see any problems that may arise much faster.
