Why Do Diabetics Need To See A Podiatrist?

If you or someone you love has diabetes, its essential that you see a podiatrist regularly. Diabetes presents unique problems with the feet, including numbness, nerve damage, circulation problems and reduced ability to heal. Did you know that diabetics can develop holes in their feet called ulcers? These can lead to infection and are the main reason that diabetics need to have their feet amputated. Diabetics should examine their feet at least once every single day and should see a podiatrist regularly. The sooner you call us, the less chance there is for amputation and surgery. Call us today at 713-785-7881 for more information or to make an appointment.
