Diabetes Q&A With Dr. Hugh Richardson

Dr. Hugh Richardson

Q: What should diabetics watch out for when inspecting the condition of their feet?

A: Diabetes can impact circulation in the lower extremities which, in turn, puts diabetic patients at an increased risk for foot problems. Inspect your feet daily. If you are unable, have someone examine your feel for you. Inspection of your feet is a very important step in good foot health. If you see something unusual — such as sores, numbness, bleeding, corns/calluses, ingrown toe nails, splinters or any other problems — seek the advice of your podiatrist as soon as possible to prevent major issues or complications.
