Diabetic Foot Care in Ennis TX

Enjoy State-of-the-Art Treatment From Your Ennis Foot Specialists

People with diabetes have a lot of conditions that they need to watch. Blood sugar needs to be checked, avoiding certain foods is needed and managing your medicine to name a few.  Your Ennis foot doctors want to remind you to also check your feet. 

Over time, diabetes can cause your nerves to lose feeling. This can allow a shoe to rub the foot without pain or even a splinter may go unnoticed. This can lead to sore that can become infections. At Family Foot & Ankle Centers in Ennis, we specialize in keeping diabetic feet happy and healthy.

How Diabetes Can Affect Your Feet

Diabetes is a severe medical condition that leads to insufficient production of insulin in the body. Insulin is an important hormone that assists cells in absorbing sugar (glucose) from the blood and using it for energy. A high amount of sugar in the blood can lead to some severe health issues, including foot problems.

Prolong circulation of high sugar in the blood can cause damage to many areas of the body, such as your feet. Two main foot problems may occur in people with diabetes.

Diabetic Neuropathy

With time, diabetes can cause severe damage to the nerves. This may lead to numbness, burning, and tingling in the feet. This condition can make it difficult to feel any sensation of feeling in the feet. With diabetic neuropathy, it is also difficult to feel infections, soreness, redness, pain, inflammation, and irritation in the feet. If there is a lack of sensation, there are more chances of blisters, sores, and cuts.

When the patient is unable to receive any treatment for the ulcers and infections, they develop gangrene and may require amputation.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Diabetes can also lead to severe alterations in the blood vessels of the feet, especially the arteries. In peripheral vascular disease, the blood vessels of the feet are blocked by fatty deposits. This decreases the amount of blood flow they can get to the feet and can lead to pain, wounds, and infections that can be difficult to heal.

Check Your Feet

One of the best strategies to prevent foot complications related to diabetes, including foot blisters and ulcers, is to manage your diabetes properly. You can achieve this through regular exercise, diet plans, and constant blood sugar monitoring. Proper foot care can help prevent foot problems and ensures quick medical attention if there is any problem.

People with debates should check their feet every day for signs redness, sores, blisters, swelling, cuts, and bruises. If you have difficulty seeing the bottom of her feet, you can examine the bottom of your feet with the help of a hand mirror. You can also place the mirror on the floor. Alternatively, you can ask someone else to help you with the examination. Contact our Ennis foot doctor as soon as possible if you see any problems with her feet

Stay On Your Feet. We Can Help.

Taking care of your feet is extremely important, especially if you have diabetes. A seemingly small problem can quickly become a big problem when you’re diabetic because you may not be able to feel if your foot is injured or you have a problem. For diabetic foot care, we highly recommend that you get checked at least 3-4 times every year to make sure your feet are in good condition. Having your feet checked this often enables us to really get to know you, your condition, and your feet, which allows us to be able to see any problems that may arise much faster.
