Diabetic Foot Care Guidelines


People with diabetes face extra dangers from injuries to their feet. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that dulls or eliminates the feeling in their feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder for an injury to heal or resist infection.

Because of these problems, diabetics may not notice a foreign object in their shoe. As a result, they could develop a blister or a sore, which could lead to an infection or a non-healing wound that could put them at risk for amputation.

To avoid serious foot problems, people with diabetes should follow these guidelines.

Remember, any type of foot or ankle pain is never normal. A foot and ankle doctor can examine your feet and give you the best course of action.

Please call 626-447-2184 (Arcadia) or 818-408-2800 (San Fernando) to speak to a foot and ankle specialist about your foot and/or ankle needs.
