BRADENTON, Fla. - Nov. 6, 2023 - PRLog -- This November, as part of National Diabetes Month, Florida Foot and Ankle Specialists are emphasizing the importance of diabetic foot care. The team of experienced podiatrists is committed to raising awareness about the significant implications of diabetes on foot health and providing comprehensive care and management strategies for patients.

In our enduring effort to enlighten and enhance the diabetes community's well-being, we present the top five tips for effective diabetic foot care:

1.      Daily Inspection: Regularly inspect your feet for any signs of injury, infection, or abnormal conditions.

2.      Maintain Hygiene: Clean your feet daily with warm water and mild soap. Ensure they are dried thoroughly, especially between the toes.

3.      Moisturize Regularly: Keep your feet moisturized to avoid dryness and cracks but avoid applying lotion between your toes.

4.      Wear Suitable Footwear: Always wear comfortable, well-fitted footwear. Avoid walking barefoot to prevent injuries.
