For diabetics, foot care is an essential part of your daily life. Issues such as small cuts or blisters can quickly become very serious. Nerve damage, a common symptom of diabetes, can make it difficult for you to feel, especially in your feet. If you don't feel a cut or blister and address it right away, it can lead to a serious infection. Another symptom of diabetes is poor blood circulation. Poor blood flow can also lead to an increased risk of sores and take longer to heal properly. This is why it is important to take the time each day to check your feet and keep them clean.
Here are six simple tips that you can incorporate into your daily routine to take care of your feet:
Check your feet every day. Make sure to check your feet every day for any cuts, blisters, sores or other issues. Also, make sure to keep an eye on your feet throughout the day for any swelling. Make it a part of your routine to check your feet every night. This can take only a few minutes, but can play a huge role in not only your foot health, but overall health.
Make sure to wash your feet every day with warm water. Keeping your feet clean on a daily basis is one of the best ways that you can protect them and reduce the risk of bacteria or infections. Make sure to carefully wash your feet every day to remove any dirt or buildup. If you notice that your feet are dirty at the end of the day, take a few minutes to wash them off so they are nice and clean. Be gentle when washing and drying your feet so you don't irritate the skin. If you have sweaty feet or it is very warm out, you can also apply a powder to your feet before putting on your socks to help eliminate moisture and keep your feet dry throughout the day.
