Diabetes Foot Care for Spring & Summer

Summer is almost here and sandal season is apon us! People with diabetes need to be extra careful when it comes to careing for your feet. Most people look forward to going barefoot on the beach or wearing sandals during summer months. But for patients with diabetes, who often have poor circulation and nerve damage in their feet, simple activities like these can be dangerous.

Fortunately, this doesn’t have to mean a summer in sneakers. With a few extra precautions, you can still enjoy sandal weather, even with diabetes. 

Maintain proper glucose 

Avoid walking barefoot

Buy the right shoes and socks

Inspect your feet daily

Use lotion for smooth skin
Trim your toenails

Make an appointment
