Over 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, and around seven million don’t even know they have the disease yet, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. The most common reason a person with diabetes is admitted to the hospital is for problems with their feet.
Because diabetes can have a significant impact on your feet, seeing a podiatrist once a year for an annual exam should be part of your comprehensive team approach in controlling diabetes.
Throughout the month of November, Indy Podiatry will be providing information regarding diabetic foot care, so that you can take preventative measures to avoid the two main underlying foot problems related to diabetes: nerve damage and poor circulation. If you have diabetes or pre-diabetes and you schedule an appointment with us during the month of November, you will receive a mirror to help with self-foot exams. You will also receive important information on diabetic foot care.
Our doctors are experts in diabetic wound care and in the treatment of the diabetic foot. If you have diabetes, give our office a call at (317) 573-4250 and let us help you keep your feet on a healthy path.
