Diabetic Foot Care in Macomb County, Michigan
Keeping Your Feet Healthy
If you suffer from Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, you may have a higher risk of foot complications. High blood glucose levels can cause the nerves in your feet to lose function. Because of this, small cuts or blisters can easily become infected without your realizing it. At Dr. Edward S. Gordon, D.P.M., P.C., and Dr. Timothy Snyder, D.P.M., P.C., we care about the health of your feet. With our regular checkups, we’ll help ensure your feet remain healthy so you can continue to get wherever you need to go.
Preventing and Managing Complications
When you come to our office, we’ll examine your feet and provide treatments to help manage any conditions that have developed. We’ll also recommend steps you can take at home to help prevent any damage or injury to your feet.
If you notice your skin color changes, your foot or ankle swells, you experience pain in your legs or you have sores that are not healing properly, come visit us today. Our podiatrist and skilled staff will provide the treatment and care you need to help your feet heal.
We also offer diabetic shoes for Medicare patients. If you are covered by Medicare, you can receive one pair of high-quality shoes with up to three removable, protective inserts to help take care of your feet. These shoes will provide support for your whole foot, including your heel and arch.
They also have wider toe beds to give your feet room to breathe and move even if they are swollen. This extra space also prevents loss of circulation to your feet. With these shoes, you reduce your risk of complications.
If you live with diabetes and have noticed problems with your feet, give our office a call today. We’ll provide the expert care you need to keep walking strongly.
