Diabetic Foot Analysis
Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet—even a small cut can produce serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder to heal an injury or resist infection. Because of these problems, you may not notice a foreign object in your shoe. As a result, you could develop a blister or a sore. This could lead to an infection or a non-healing wound that could put you at risk. This makes a Diabetic Foot Analysis extremely important.
Treatment should address three major concerns: debridement, offloading, and infection control. Proper foot care can prevent these common foot problems or they should be treated before they cause serious complications. We perform an initial evaluation, refer patients promptly, and help with follow-up of patients and healing wounds.
