Many people do not realize the important connection between Diabetic Foot Problems and your health. Did you know that diabetes can cause poor blood flow to your feet, resulting in problems that can become very serious throughout your body? It’s also possible to lose all feeling in your feet if you do not monitor your blood sugar correctly.
Diabetes can affect the nerves in your feet causing muscle damage, slow healing, and high infection risks. If you suffer from a small cut or sore on your foot, contact our office immediately. Because of the lack of circulation in your feet, your cuts and sores will heal very slowly and can cause germs and fungus to get into these cuts and cause a major infection that could lead to surgery, and sometimes if left untreated, even amputations.
Little problems that many people think are not important in your feet can often result to huge problems very quickly. That is why Dr. Feldman will always make room for his schedule when it comes to any problem with your feet.
If you have any questions about your feet, please contact us right away at 702-407-2548 and schedule an appointment. Let us help you get back on your feet, so you can enjoy a wonderful holiday season.
