Diabetic Foot CareExperts at Duke University Medical Center found that diabetic patients who have the APOE4 gene may be more susceptible to peripheral neuropathy. Research also shows that some people are more prone to neuropathy due to their genetics.

According to Geoff Michaels of NewsFix, about half of people afflicted with diabetes get peripheral neuropathy. This is happens when nerve impairment in the feet occurs as a result of decreased blood flow. An increased risk of diabetic foot ulcers and other complications can result. Taking control and monitoring your blood sugar could help prevent neuropathy.  

If you are currently suffering from diabetes and need help with diabetic foot care, it is recommended to seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein can help you manage your diabetic feet to ensure that they remain healthy, while providing you with any treatment options if any problems do arise.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes affects millions of people of all ages each year. Diabetes damages blood vessels in many parts of the body, including the feet. When damage occurs to nerves in the feet, they may be unable to send the proper signals to the peripheral nervous system, resulting in a condition known as neuropathy. Once a diabetic patient develops neuropathy, it is imperative that the feet are well taken care of to avoid possible amputation of the feet.

The Importance of Caring for Your Feet

- Regularly check your feet for bruises or sores.
- Wear socks that fit your feet; socks shouldn’t be tight.
- Wear properly fitting shoes that are comfortable.
