So what a hugely ignored region of the body feet are. The very base of us. The very instrument of motion. Disregarded at large by most. Diabetic and non-diabetic.
Why do some diabetics have problems ? The long and the short is that largely this area can be protected, well taken care of as well as preserved.
Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects the whole body, including the feet. The blood vessels and nerves going to the feet are tiny calibre vessels, easily damaged. Think of coke rushing through your arteries and veins and what stickiness that would cause?
An ulcer on a foot is a serious thing. In fact any break in the skin is something that has to be dealt with asap. The thing with diabetic feet is that often the nerves are damaged first and there is no proper feeling and damage occurs much more easily and worse damage due to no feeling.
The human body is an amazing thing and can do spectacular processes of healing.
There are so many awesome wound treatments these days, no amputations should be taking place if the correct care at the correct time takes place.
If in doubt ask a caring practitioner to take a look.
Don’t leave a foot injury even for one day.
