Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation or lack of sensation after poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores, and non-healing wounds which may lead to ulcers. These wounds can also develop into serious infections which can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life.
With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing neuropathy. Symptoms of this nerve disorder can be pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensation in your feet. Our Podiatrist recommends that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation.
Merritt Island Foot & Ankle will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and determine if you have neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, Merritt Island Foot & Ankle will design a treatment plan specifically for you. If have diabetes please make an appointment, so that we can provide you with the care you'll need to minimize possible complication
