    Diabetic Foot Care

    When you have diabetes, proper foot care is
    very important. Poor foot care may lead to
    amputation of a foot or leg.


    As a person with diabetes, you are more
    vulnerable to foot problems, because diabetes
    can damage your nerves and reduce blood
    flow to your feet.


    1.Wash and Dry Your Feet Daily
    Use mild soaps
    Use warm water

    2. Examine Your Feet Each Day
    Check the tops and bottoms of your feet.
    Check for dry, cracked skin.
    Look for blisters, cuts, scratches, or other
    sores.
    3. Be Careful When Exercising
    Walk and exercise in comfortable shoes.
    Do not exercise when you have open sores
    on your feet.
    4. Others
    Don't wait to treat a minor foot problem if
    you have diabetes. Follow your health care
    provider's guidelines and first aid
    guidelines.

    Report foot injuries and infections to your
    health care provider immediately.
