If you have diabetes you probably already know the importance of taking good care of your feet. This is because diabetes can cause circulatory problems which can negatively affect specific areas of your body. Problems with feet commonly occur with diabetic patients. For this reason it is generally recommended that people with diabetes see a podiatrist for foot care on a regular basis. Our foot doctor will be able to tell you how often you should see him for diabetic foot care. Patients come to our foot care practice for Southfield diabetic foot care on a regular basis.

It is especially important that patients come to see us for Southfield diabetic foot care for regular checkups, or for when they see a foot problem starting. This problem can be small or large, ranging from an infected corn to a developing wound. In either event we will be able to provide you with the expert and timely care that you need in order to keep a problem from getting larger and possibly even landing you in the hospital.
Southfield diabetic foot care can be so important for diabetics because many patients have a reduced sense of feeling in their feet. This is caused by their poor blood circulation which is no longer as effective as it used to be. Common diabetic foot problems can include foot ulcers, infections and even gangrene. Problems can become very serious quickly and can call for hospitalization and even amputation if early treatment is not received. It is recommended if you have diabetes that you check the bottom of your feet every day to make sure there is nothing developing that you are unaware of. Our foot doctor will be able to tell you just how often you should come in and see us for a regularly scheduled diabetic foot exam. In our foot practice we also provide treatment for a very wide range of foot problems. If you would like to see our foot doctor simply contact us for an appointment. If you have a foot problem which needs immediate attention please let us know at the time you are making an appointment. We will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.
