DIABETIC FOOT CARE
If You Have Diabetes It Is Essential That You Have Your Feet Evaluated By Your Podiatrist
Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation or lack of sensation after poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores, and non-healing wounds which may lead to ulcers. These wounds can also develop into serious infections which can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life.
With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing neuropathy. Symptoms of neuropathy can be pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensation in your feet. Our Diabetic Foot Specialist recommends that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation.
Central Jersey Foot & Ankle Care will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and determine if you have peripheral neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, our Podiatrists will design a treatment plan specifically for you.
