Diabetic Foot CareExperts at Duke University Medical Center have discovered that patients who are diabetic and are carrying the APOE4 gene may be susceptible to peripheral neuropathy. According to Geoff Michaels of NewsFIx, approximately 50 percent of people with diabetes get peripheral neuropathy, where decreased blood flow leads to nerve impairment in the feet.

This actually increases the risk of diabetic foot ulcers and other complications to take shape. Taking control and monitoring your blood sugar may prevent neuropathy.  Research also has proven that particular people could be more prone to neuropathy because of their genetic make-up.

If you are currently suffering from diabetes and need help with diabetic foot care, it is recommended to seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can help you manage your diabetic feet to ensure that they remain healthy, while also providing you with any treatment options if any problems do arise.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes affects millions of people of all ages each year. Diabetes damages blood vessels in many parts of the body, including the feet. When damage occurs to nerves in the feet, they may be unable to send the proper signals to the peripheral nervous system, resulting in a condition known as neuropathy. Once a diabetic patient develops neuropathy, it is imperative that the feet are well taken care of to avoid possible amputation of the feet.

The Importance of Caring for Your Feet

- Regularly check your feet for bruises or sores.
- Wear socks that fit your feet; socks shouldn’t be tight.
- Wear properly fitting shoes that are comfortable.
