Did you know...
25% of people living with diabetes will develop a diabetic foot ulcer? This means that proper foot care is essential for people with diabetes. Be sure to check your feet for sores or injuries, wash your feet every day, trim toenails, wear proper fitting shoes, always wear socks or stockings, and stay active to help circulation to your feet.
For people living with diabetes, a poor defense against infection and damage to blood circulation can complicate problems with their feet causing them to become vulnerable to injury. About 60% of non-traumatic lower limb amputations were performed on adults with diabetes. Make sure to take care of your feet!
