Diabetic Foot Treatment
At KSF, our foot specialists are trained and experienced in diabetic foot treatment and care. If a doctor has ever said you had an elevated blood sugar level - even just once when you were pregnant - you are at risk for diabetes. About 23 million people (roughly 15 percent of the United States population) have the disease. Nervous system impairment (neuropathy) is a major complication that may cause you to lose feeling in your feet or hands. This means you won't know right away if you hurt yourself. The problem affects about 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes.
Foot ailments are a big risk. Like all diabetic people, you should monitor your feet. If you don't, the consequences can be severe, including amputation, or worse.
Minor injuries become major emergencies before you know it. With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases your blood flow, so your injuries are slow to heal. When your wound is not healing, it's at risk for infection. As a diabetic, your infections spread quickly.
