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.:)
