How Can Diabetes Cause Foot Problems?
Over the time, diabetes can lead to nerve damage, also known as diabetic neuropathy. It can cause numbness and pain, and it can cause you to lose sensation in your feet, which means you may not feel something inside your socks or blisters on your foot. It can lead to cuts and sores, and they can be infected.
Diabetes can also decrease blood flow to your feet. Lack of blood flow to your legs and feet can make a wound or infection difficult to heal. Sometimes, serious infections do not go away.
Acute sores and feet that do not improve with treatment may result in amputation of the toe, foot, or part of your leg.
The surgeon may amputate the limb to prevent the spread of this malignant infection to the rest of your body which saves a life. Foot care is very important because it helps prevent dangerous illnesses and infections. In some cases, nerve damage from diabetes can lead to changes in the shape of your feet, such as Charcot’s foot. Charcot’s foot may start with redness, warmth, and swelling. Later, the bones in your feet and toes can change or break, which can cause your feet to have an abnormal shape, such as “rocker bottom.”
What kind of shoes should you buy for diabetic feet?
Medicomf has a large variety of best sandals for diabetics to ease your diabetic feet. The following are some kinds of shoes you should get to ease your diabetic feet. These shoes vary depending upon the size and type of infection.
Deep shoes are 1/4 to 1/2 inches deeper than regular shoes. Extra room can accommodate foot changes such as calluses or hammertoes. Deep shoes also leave ample space for installation if you need them.
Healing shoes are worn while recovering from foot ulcers or foot surgery. They come with open-toed sandals or closed versions. Generally, open-toed shoes are not recommended for people with diabetes unless your doctor has instructed you.
Custom shoes are made from the mould of your foot. This type of shoe can be an option if your feet are deformed.
Generally, medical shoes are specially designed to keep your feet healthy if you have neuropathy, nerve damage, or an existing foot injury.
Orthopedic shoes are designed to provide extra comfort for corns, bunions and other foot problems, as we know that not everyone who wears orthopedic shoes has diabetes. A wide variety of orthopedic shoes are available, regardless of the shoe style or the type of sole you choose.
You can also change the shoes you already have. For example, you could add a thick layer, which holds the shock. You can also add orthotics. These are footpads or items that fit inside your shoes to remove pressure from your feet and give you extra comfort.
How to Take Care of Diabetic Feet?
You can avoid serious problems with diabetes by consulting your doctor and receiving early treatment for conditions affecting your feet.
Sadly, there is no cure for diabetic neuropathy. But you can take steps to reduce the spread of the disease. Your doctor will probably recommend pain medications to help reduce nerve pain.
You can take over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen for mild pain. For moderate or severe pain, prescription medications such as anticonvulsants and antidepressants can help alleviate nerve pain and improve your quality of life, too.
Maintaining a healthy weight and regular exercise may delay the progression of diabetic neuropathy.
Vascular Peripheral Disease
If you have the vascular peripheral disease, your doctor will also recommend treatment to slow the progression of the disease and improve blood flow.
Regular exercise, eating a healthy, nutritious diet, and losing weight can help improve blood flow, as does quit smoking. Smoking blocks blood vessels.
Treatment may also involve medication to reduce blood pressure, lower your cholesterol, or lower your blood pressure, depending on the underlying cause.
Proper treatment of diabetes — medication, regular exercise, and a healthy diet — can also reduce the symptoms of circulatory disorders.
In extreme cases, you may need angioplasty for peripheral vascular disease. This is a surgical procedure to open a blocked artery and restore blood flow.
Gangrene and Charcot foot
Gangrene Treatment involves antibiotics to kill germs and stop infection and surgery from removing damaged tissue. Charcot foot treatment involves the prevention of progressive disability.
Wearing concrete to protect the foot and ankle may gradually strengthen these bones, as does the wearing of custom-made shoes or planks. In severe cases, surgery may help to correct a defect.
Another way to prevent foot problems and diabetes is to keep your blood sugar within a healthy range, regularly checking your blood sugar. Also, take your diabetes medication as prescribed. If you are facing problems controlling your blood sugar, consult a doctor.
Other tips for preventing foot problems include:
- Exercise for half an hour most days a week.
- Contact a nutritionist or a certified diabetes educator (CDE) for advice on diet planning.
- Stop smoking.
- Normalize your sugar and cholesterol levels.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
Good Foot Care Habits
Not only must you take steps to keep your blood sugar within a healthy range, but you must also take steps to keep your feet healthy. Here’s how to protect your feet from diabetes:
- Check your feet every day and carefully, take a look for signs of injury, such as scratches, cuts, blisters, etc.
- Wear appropriate shoes to avoid injuries and blisters.
- Do not go barefoot.
- Moisturize your feet daily.
- Wash and dry your feet daily.
- Trim your nails straight across to avoid standing nails.
- See a doctor remove corns or calluses (do not do it yourself).
- Treat cuts immediately to prevent infection (clean sores daily and apply antibiotic ointment).
