When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Joseph G. Burckhardt may suggest diabetic shoes to wear on a daily basis.
Diabetic shoes are highly beneficial, since they can not only provide foot support and comfort; they can also reduce the risk of foot conditions, such as skin breakdown. Don't let neuropathy destroy your feet.
Like everyone else, you may get calluses and foot ulcers from daily activity. However, neuropathy from diabetes can cause you to be unaware of such conditions, which can become aggravated as time goes on.
When you visit our practice, we'll keep
an eye out for these things and suggest
the appropriate steps to taking care of them.
Neuropathy in diabetes is common and can cause foot injuries to go unnoticed because of loss of feeling. Come in regularly to make sure everything is ok.
