Diabetic Foot Treatment Brooklyn and Manhattan, New York: Ulcers
Foot ulcers are a common complication of the “diabetic foot”. These ulcers are caused by too much pressure on the skin of the foot which eventually leads to the skin “breaking down” and, in many cases, becoming infected. They can occur under corns and calluses. Proper diabetic foot care includes avoiding pressure to the affected area and quality wound dressings.

Podiatrists have an extremely important role to play in the prevention and management of complications of the foot problems affecting diabetics. All those who are at risk of developing foot problems complicated by diabetes should have their risk status assessed at least once a year (more if the risk is greater). Podiatrists should advise diabetics on proper how to reduce the chances of damaging their feet, and on what to do once damage has been done.
Regular diabetic foot care from a podiatrist is the best way to prevent foot problems complicated by diabetes.
When something does go wrong, see a podiatrist immediately. Waiting a few days to “see what happens” before seeing someone may result in a minor, solvable problem snowballing into a critical medical condition. The sooner treatment is started the better.
