Diabetes can, unfortunately, cause many foot problems that often lead to severe pain and discomfort. With a diabetic foot, a small wound or blister can cause significant damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, the reason why injuries take time to heal. When the wounds don’t heal, the chances of infection increase. As a diabetic, even minor infections can spread quickly and affect your overall health. Don’t wait and sit with the pain, visit The Foot Clinic for help. We offer ingrown toenail treatment and diabetic foot care for our Toronto clients and do a complete assessment to ensure your feet are healthy and safe.
Catch Foot Issues Before They Become a Problem
Due to poor blood circulation, diabetes damages the nerves in your feet and legs, and it often leads to serious consequences. When you can’t feel the heat/cold/pain in your feet, you are unaware of potentially harmful issues. To prevent yourself from running the risk of developing such conditions, we recommend regular foot exams, at least once a year.
