Diabetes is a disease affecting many parts of the body.  While there is no cure for diabetes, there is hope. With proper diet, exercise, medical care, and careful management at home, a person with diabetes can enjoy a full and active life.
Of the more than 28 million people in the US with diabetes, about half will develop neuropathy, a loss of feeling in the lower extremities. This nerve damage means an open sore or injury on the foot may go unnoticed until it becomes infected, which can eventually lead to the need for partial or full amputation of the foot or lower leg. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic lower-limb amputation.  Your Fenton Foot Care podiatrist is an integral part of the treatment team that prevents unnecessary complications including amputations.
The doctors and staff at Fenton Foot Care encourage individuals to schedule a Comprehensive Diabetic Foot Exam.  This simple, painless examination helps diagnose the onset of diabetes and foot related problems due to the disease.
