Foot problems are common among individuals with diabetes mellitus. This is brought about by three factors- neuropathy, poor circulation and the inability to fight off infection. Simple wounds that are left undetected and unmanaged may become severe. Diabetic persons who do not receive the right foot care are the ones who are more at risk for amputation.
Since diabetic patients have decreased ability to feel pain or anything, they will not know they already have a cut in their skin. With this, it will progress into something worse that is already difficult to handle. This is the importance of receiving diabetic foot care from Mattison Podiatry Group experts and how it can help diabetic individuals prevent complications.
