Care for your Diabetes

When it comes to diabetic foot care, trust Bedford Podiatry & Foot Surgery, PC in Bedford, Virginia. We offer custom orthotics and other treatment options. 

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes can cause poor circulation or loss of feeling in your feet. This makes you more vulnerable to cuts, bruises, blister & other injuries, since you may not feel pain, cold, or heat on your lower extremities. Sometimes, even a tender spot, callus, corn or even a tiny break in the skin can turn into a full-blown wound which can lead to infection without your knowledge. Diabetics are more prone to infection and poor blood flow in your feet slows down healing. If not treated promptly, a small wound in your foot may lead to infection, the small wound becoming a larger wound & ultimately amputation.
