FOOT CARE for diabetic


Foot care is very important for people with diabetes, more especially if you have foot ulcers or sores that do not heal which may eventually lead to amputation (thank GOD my right thumb ingrown blister that I have for many years is finally healed). You have to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep your blood sugar and cholesterol normal as possible. Aside to that, there is a lot you can do to prevent serious foot problem such as: wash your feet with warm water; dry your feet well; smooth corns and calluses; trim your toenails when needed (with proper clippers); wear socks with your shoes at all time; do foot exercise (wiggle your toes and move your ankle up and down) keep the blood flowing to your feet; well, if you have a budget you can visit a foot spa for a foot massage. So, diabetic people should take care and be aware of their feet and remember to see a doctor if a cut, sore, or bruise on your foot does not begin to heal after 1 day.
