A lot of people see diabetes as an ailment that just affects your blood sugar levels. However, it goes a lot deeper; with the danger of complications like nerve damage and poor circulation. This makes your feet more vulnerable to things like foot sores and ulcers. If not treated, this can lead to devastating amputation.
If diabetes is affecting your feet, the symptoms are mostly the same. Most people, as mentioned earlier, develop foot ulcers and sores. These are painful and unsightly; and can even cause numbness, tingling, burning, sharp pains, cramps, sensitivity, muscle weakness and more.
When the condition causes a severe loss of tissue or a life-threatening infection, amputation is often the only solution. Please – never underestimate the power of an early diagnosis! If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms, just get in touch at the number shown on screen to schedule an in-depth consultation.
We work with each of our patients to get to the root of the problem, finding a treatment option that matches your needs. This is why it’s so important to never self-diagnose. Google will tell you that something non-serious has a lot of the same symptoms as something serious.
Treatment options include endocrinology, removing deep tissue, and even surgery if need be. Now, when it comes to the cause…each patient is different. Things like smoking, poor hygiene, poorly-fitting shoes and more can all aggravate the situation. But at the end of the day, it all comes down to the severity of your diabetes condition.
Again – please don’t wait. Prevention is always better than cure, and even if a cure is what you need, we’ll work with you to make it happen. Give us a call or visit our website to find out more about your available options. It’s never too late to win your life back!
* Each individual’s treatment and results will vary based on the circumstances, the patients’ specific situation, and goals.
