Diabetes - foot care

The feet of diabetic patients are prone to injuries and infections like blisters, bunions, corns, calluses and cuts. These conditions are common among diabetics because in diabetes, feet are more vulnerable than they usually are. It however pays to remember that with good care, even the most difficult foot conditions are not inevitable. Meticulous and proper foot care is especially important for diabetic patients.

Treatment

  • It is important that you follow the instructions for foot care received from your doctor. Below are listed some common guidance for diabetic foot care.
  • Examine your feet daily for small cuts, blisters, skin colour changes and skin temperature changes.
  • Use foot care products designed for diabetic patients: shoes, socks and insoles.
  • Make sure that your shoes fit properly and are not too tight.
  • Ensure that there are no pebbles or other grit in your shoes before you put them on. They can chafe your skin.
  • Use special foot care products designed especially for diabetics: lotions and foams. Do not apply lotion between your toes if your foot care product does not especially recommend this.
  • Don’t use strong chemicals on your feet, or products that contain strong chemicals.
  • Wash your feet daily and dry them carefully also between your toes. Remember not to soak your feet since it can make your feet even drier. Try not to rub the towel on your feet too much when drying.
  • Carefully avoid cutting your skin when cutting your toe nails. Cut them after taking a bath when the nails are softer and do not round the edges.
  • Exercise your feet daily to avoid muscle atrophy and its consequences like hammer toes and high arches.
