Proper foot care, daily foot checks, essential to diabetic health
from Endocrine Today
Adults with diabetes can take an important step toward better overall health — and possibly prevent life-threatening complications — by simply taking off their socks and shoes and examining their feet twice a day. Healthcare professionals also need to prioritize examining the feet of diabetic patients at every visit and stress the importance of checking the feet each day at home, Robert P. Thompson, CPed, executive director of the non-profit Institute for Preventive Foot Health, said during a session on diabetic foot health.
