Lexington Foot & Ankle Center Diabetic Foot Care

For patients with diabetes, proper foot care is absolutely critical. Unfortunately, diabetic patients are prone to a number of serious conditions including:

  • Poor circulation from peripheral vascular disease
  • Neuropathy (numbness or loss of feeling in the feet) that can lead to accidental injury
  • Changes in foot shape (also called Charcot Foot)
  • Foot ulcers or sores that don’t heal

If left untreated, these conditions may lead to infection and put diabetics at risk for even more serious health problems that could result in amputation.

For these reasons, diligent foot care to prevent and detect foot injury is extremely important. This care should include particular attention to proper footwear, regular inspection of the feet, and seeking prompt treatment from your healthcare providers.

At Lexington Foot & Ankle, we have extensive experience in diabetic foot care and are here to help through prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment.  Call (859) 278-8855 or toll free (888) 689-3668 today to schedule your appointment!
