What Does a Daily Diabetes Foot Care Contain?

Q:  
I know foot care is important in the diabetic management. How to protect foot in the daily life?

 

A:
Totally agreed. Feet care in diabetes is necessary to the same degree as glucose monitoring.
You better check your foot on a daily basis every night before sleep.

  1. Check your feet, toes, and heels for any cuts, sores, or skin color changes.
  2. Check between your toes for fungus that might cause athlete’s foot.
  3. Look at your toenails to spot any changes.
  4. Watch for dry, cracking skin on your feet, toes, and heels.

Most importantly, wear thick, soft socks and clean, comfortable shoes!
