Diabetes: Foot Care

Click to See the Video


Neuropathy, or nerve damage, can create a loss of sensation in diabetic individuals, particularly in the feet. If not treated carefully, cuts, sores, or wounds in the feet can lead to severe infections that may require amputation.

In this video, learn how you can avoid infection through a change in footwear, grooming, and activities. It is important to avoid extreme temperatures to prevent damage from burning or frostbite. Regular appointments with a podiatrist will help prevent and treat damage.

For a podiatrist in the Chicagoland area, contact Dr. Jeffrey Betman, an experienced physician that can help you with diabetic foot care, as well as other foot or ankle pain. Call us today for more information at 1-866-FOOTPAL (366-8725).
