Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetic Foot Care Birmingham MI - Podiatrist, Foot Doctor, Foot Clinic, Foot Specialist - Foot Docs - 140446994About 25% of Americans with diabetes will develop foot problems related to the disease. Diabetic foot conditions usually develop from a combination of poor circulation and neuropathy. Diabetics suffering from neuropathy can develop cuts, scrapes, blisters, or pressure sores that they may not be aware of due to insensitivity. If left untreated, these non-healing foot sores could even lead to gangrene and amputation. It is very important for diabetics to take the necessary precautions to prevent all foot related injuries and reduce the risk of serious foot conditions.
 
Since 1993, Medicare Part B has provided partial reimbursement for extra-depth shoes and inserts for qualifying patients with diabetes. Medical experts agree that many amputations resulting from diabetes-related foot complications can be prevented by appropriate, properly fitting footwear.
