Diabetes can affect the foot in multiple ways. It is always recommended that Diabetics regularly see a podiatrist on a regular basis to prevent complications. If you’re interested in addressing or preventing these issues, we at Dallas Direct Podiatry are here to help.
The main concern with the effect of diabetes is damage to the circulatory and nervous system. Damage to these symptoms prevents patients from knowing when they have injured their foot. In addition, damage to the circulatory system prevents proper wound healing.
Over time, these minor issues can progress and eventually cause serious issues like an infection. This can lead to amputation. Dr. Tran at Dallas Direct Podiatry aims to help patients with prevention. We will help you understand your condition, and will help you make lifestyle changes that decrease your risk for serious future problems.
