Diabetic Foot Care - San Francisco Podiatrist Union Square CA Dr. Bill Metaxas discusses the Diabetic Complications and Amputation Prevention. *******www.footankleinstitutesf**** DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS AND AMPUTATION PREVENTION People with diabetes are prone to many foot problems, often because of two complications of diabetes: nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor blood circulation. Neuropathy causes loss of feeling in your feet, taking away your ability to feel pain and discomfort, so you may not detect an injury or irritation. Poor circulation in your feet reduces your ability to heal, making it hard for even a tiny cut to resist infection. When you have diabetes, you need to be aware of how foot problems can arise from disturbances in the skin, nails, nerves, bones, muscles, and blood vessels. Furthermore, in diabetes, small foot problems can turn into serious complications. You can do much to prevent amputation by taking two important steps: • Follow the proactive measures discussed below • See your foot and ankle surgeon regularly. Your Proactive Measures You play a vital role in reducing complications. Follow these guidelines and contact your foot and ankle surgeon if you notice any problems: • Inspect your feet daily. Skin or nail problems-Look for cuts, scrapes, redness, drainage, swelling, bad odor, rash, discoloration, loss of hair on toes, injuries, or nail changes (deformed, striped, yellowed or discolored, thickened, or not growing). Signs of fracture-If your foot is swollen, red, hot, or has changed in size, shape, or direction, see your foot and ankle surgeon immediately. (If your eyesight is poor, have someone else do it for you.) • Observe for changes in circulation. Pay attention to the color of your toes. If they turn red, pink, or purplish when your legs hang down while sitting, poor circulation may be a problem. • Don't ignore leg pain. Pain in the leg that occurs at night or with a little activity could mean you have a blocked artery. Seek care immediately. • Nail cutting. If you have any nail problems, hard nails, or reduced feeling in your feet, your toenails should be trimmed professionally. • No bathroom surgery. Never trim calluses or corns yourself, and don't use over-the-counter medicated pads. • Keep floors free of sharp objects. Make sure there are no needles, insulin syringes, or other sharp objects on the floor. • Don't go barefoot. Wear shoes, indoors and outdoors. • Check shoes and socks. Shake out your shoes before putting them on. Make sure your socks aren't bunched up. • Have your sense of feeling tested. Your foot and ankle surgeon will perform various tests to see if you've lost any feeling. Visit our website: *******www.footankleinstitutesf****

Could You be at Risk? American Diabetes Association "Sounds the Alert" on March 25th – ADA's 20th Annual American Diabetes Alert® Day Could you have diabetes? One in five Americans have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, or may even already have diabetes. Because people can live for years without knowing they have diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is issuing an urgent call-to-action for Americans to learn their risk for type 2 diabetes during the 20th Annual American Diabetes Alert Day. Awareness about diabetes can lead to early detection and treatment, which may help prevent type 2 diabetes or devastating complications associated with diabetes such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease, and amputation. On American Diabetes Alert Day, held annually on the fourth Tuesday in March, the ADA encourages people who are overweight, physically inactive, or over the age of 45 years to take the Diabetes Risk Test, which asks seven simple questions about weight, age, lifestyle and family history - all potential risk factors for type 2 diabetes. People scoring 10 points or more are at a high risk for diabetes and are encouraged to speak with their health care provider. The Diabetes Risk Test, in English or Spanish, is available by calling the Association toll-free at 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383) or by visiting www.diabetes****/alertnews.

Diabetic Feet - Podiatrist in Stratford, Turnersville and Mt. Ephraim, NJ Dr. Scott Warren discusses why it is so important for diabetics to come in for a comprehensive foot exam to help avoid the complications of diabetes. *******academypodiatry**** According to the American Diabetes Association, about 15.7 million people (5.9 percent of the United States population) have diabetes. Nervous system damage (also called neuropathy) affects about 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes and is a major complication that may cause diabetics to lose feeling in their feet or hands. Foot problems are a big risk in diabetics. Diabetics must constantly monitor their feet or face severe consequences, including amputation. With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal. When your wound is not healing, it's at risk for infection. As a diabetic, your infections spread quickly. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet every day. Look for puncture wounds, bruises, pressure areas, redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts and nail problems. Get someone to help you, or use a mirror.

Doug Forbis, 24, doesn't have legs but that hasn't stopped him being an all-round action man. Doug was born with the severest form of a very rare condition called sacral agenesis or caudal regression syndrome which means his spine didn't develop properly in the womb. Doug had his legs amputated as a baby and has learned to walk on his hands or use a wheelchair. Doug is a big advocate of wheelchair sports and is training to be a teacher for children with special needs. He also works as a volunteer to help able bodied teenagers understand what it's like to have a disability. He loves sport and claims his condition has never stopped him doing anything he wanted to do. He has a girlfriend, Elizabeth Tilden, 24, a highway patrol dispatcher, the pair plan to get married and move in together in the future.
