A diabetic foot is an at risk foot
we stomp out that risk
Providing the most comprehensive foot and leg care available to Diabetics.
A diabetic foot is an at risk foot. In order to lower that risk, diabetic patients need a risk assessment exam.
Diabetic patients are no longer dying from blood sugar that is wildly out of control but rather they are dying from chronic complications of the disease.
- The #1 reason a diabetic will be admitted to a hospital is due to an infected wound on the foot.
- 50% of diabetic patients who are at risk will have no symptoms whatsoever.
- 70% of diabetic patients have neuropathy but 90% don’t know it. Neuropathy can often lead to wounds and serious falls.
Neuropathy is numbness, tingling and burning in your feet.
Neuropathy plus other issues (calluses, hammertoes, a blister, etc.) is the most common pathway to developing wounds. It’s also a leading cause of minor and major falls. Neuropathy must be addressed.
Neuropathy is considered a progressive disease. In other words, without intervention by skilled clinicians, numbness and burning are likely to continue to worsen causing many complications. Early detection is key.
VASCULAR AND BLOOD FLOW
30% of all wounds are caused by blood flow issues to the lower extremities.
A wound with inadequate blood flow will either not heal or will slowly, opening the patient up to the risk of infection and possibly even amputation.
A comprehensive risk assessment helps the doctor understand whether you are at risk for having non healing wounds in the future.
Diabetes plus neuropathy plus poor blood flow is cause for concern because all it takes is one small issue and you’ve got a perfect storm for infection and non healing wounds.
Most patients would never think their calluses or hammertoes would put them at risk but, when combined with neuropathy, these are the #1 pathway to wounds.
During your Diabetic Foot and Leg Risk Assessment Exam, the doctor can tell you the risks in your feet (early detection is key) and offer simple but powerful solutions to remove you from the pathway of developing wounds.
