List of Foot Issues for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes and Foot Ulcers

 

Foot issues are general problems for the mature years of life for many people because it is farthest from heart and blood has no problem going down to the feet but coming back to the heart to circulate again becomes harder gradually. This natural fact and combination of Diabetes makes it worse and creates light to drastic problems for diabetic feet with high levels of glucose. Foot podiatrist is the medical expert for these problems. For general health care of the foot and to find changes to your feet keep in touch with a podiatrist. Here is a list of problems that can be faced

 

  • Dry skin and cracked heels
  • Blisters and sores
  • Bruise and cuts
  • Foot ulcers
  • Neuropathy in the feet
  • Feet Calluses
  • Poor blood circulation
  • Amputation of the leg, foot or toe amputation
  • Achilles Tendinitis and achilles pain
  • Bunions on feet
  • Hammertoes
  • Heel Bone Spur
  • Ingrown toe nails
  • Heal Pain or Planter fasciitis
  • Stress fracture of the foot
  • Gout disease – due to kidney problems caused by diabetes

 

 

Foot Ulcers

 

What is Foot Ulcer? It is a sore spot in the feet when a person is suffering from type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It can start as a blister small cut or foot bruise and constant neglect and no treat ment or miss treatment can turn it into an ulcer. The end result of this is amputation of the toe, foot or leg. It is stated that 80 % of Diabetic amputations start this way.

 

Symptoms of foot ulcer for type 1 and type 2 diabetes

 

  • Cold feet
  • Pain in a particular spot of the foot
  • Sores, ulcers or blister on the foot
  • Changes in the skin color, turned darker, red or blue
  • Swollen foot or ankle
  • Fever, or other obvious signs of infection

 

Consulting a podiatrist who specializes in diabetic feet treatment is the best way to handle it and do it as early as possible to save all the pain suffering and best cure of the problem. Foot care specialist will follow testing and Diagnosis procedures to confirm the nature of the problem. This may include the following tests.

 

  • X-Ray
  • CT scan
  • MRI scan
  • Doppler or arteriographic studies to determine blood flow
  • Blood glucose test along with complete blood count test

 

After the results are received the podiatrist will be able to find a solution for your foot treatment and the patient will have to understand all the complications and care to be able to follow the treatment for the foot problem.

 

Keeping pressure off the foot by resting, special casts, shoes, boots and medication if needed is a part of the treatment. Wound care is very important. Suitable antibiotics and maintaining regular blood sugar levels with medicine/insluins planned meals and daily exercise is to be followed very carefully.

 

Skin graft debridement that is the removal of the dead tissue and gaining normal blood flow to the foot is the key to proper healing. If this is not achieved by treatment the final stage is amputation.

 

Prevention is even better than early detection

 

Read my previous post about the general care of Type 1 and type 2 diabetes foot care and make sure to check your feet every day and do the following

 

  • Daily cleaning and applying best skin moisturizer with vitamin E or simply vaseline petroleum Jelly
  • Inspect feet daily for the temperature, color change or any small cuts blister or bruises
  • Get feet checked by the physician and once a year by the podiatrist
  •  If it is hard to trim nails get it trimmed with the podiatrist.
  •  Watch your blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible, by healthy meal planning, portion control, exercise daily and take medicines/insluins properly.
  •  Get your calluses removed by the podiatrist if any
  • Maintain a foot temperature monitor and use it often for temperature checking of the foot to maintain a healthy temperature according to the instructions received from the podiatrist.

 

To simplify foot issues I will say keep an eye on your feet by inspecting and caring for foot health every day and check if there is any kind of change that concerns you. Early detection and proper early treatment will help you cure diabetic feet fast and easy.

      Hi Kate, thanks for agreeing with me. Once a person focuses on health he/she acquires a sense of well being and an ultimate confidence on other important matter, self recognition grows exponentially.

      You are right on the dot, diabetes is a sickness to be alarmed about, for adults and childrren both.
      Treatments and people’s general attention does not help to get rid of the disease away from communities, it is the society as a whole that has to take care of it. Thanks for being alert. Fran A

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Amazing blog!

      Hi Boris Thanks for likeing the post and a suggention to an imroved look. I do have lots of reader already. I used to have pictures and video’s on the same blog few months ago, but Health awarness topic made it a blog with no picture, as it does not have fluff at all just facts, and at times it is hard to find a picture about a certain awareness topic. But your suggestion has value and I will think about it. Fran A

    Hi Fran, nice article and I hope your readers benefit from your information. I am a podiatrist with 22 years experience and so have seen many of the problems you discuss. As you say it is worth getting your feet checked, you may prevent future problems as well as diagnosing current foot issues. The feet are also an early warning source for other problems in other sites of the body that may presently be silent or unknown.

      Hi Kevin

      You have a very related and useable site for those who need it. Diabetes is so davestating and still spreading like wild fire, it really shocks me. Imagine how it impacts our daily success as we as a nation are not able to perform mentally physically and socially due to this disease. I hope the new treatment which is very expensive becomes easily affordable and next gneration may reduce the number of diabetes and eventually diabetes disappers. Fran A

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net will be much more helpful than ever before.
