Posted Mar 30 2011 6:22am
Foot problems can become critical in diabetic patients. Hence it is crucial for people with diabetes to take foot care to avoid complications. EuroScrub Foot Scrubber/Safety Mat helps keep feet clean.
What is the link between Diabetes and foot problems?
The link between Diabetes and foot problems can be found in nervous system malfunctions which is a direct result of the diseases, in turn leading to patients inability to control, co-ordinate or even feel their feet properly. Normal sweating and oil secretion for skin lubrication of the feet starts to slow down significantly in turn leading to the development of sores and wounds on the feet.
Diabetic patients in general experience problems with wound healing due to damage of blood vessels and immune deficiencies. This will undoubtedly result in bacterial infections in affected areas. These complications in turn will lead to cell death in the form of tissue decay. If any of the complications are not treated properly or in time, the chances of the infection spreading to the bloodstream are greatly increased with the potential to lead to death.
Due to the fact that Diabetics are so prone to foot disorders, extra special attention should be paid to their feet. These can be done in the following ways:
Its absolutely imperative for diabetic patients to:
self-examination of patient feet and early symptom or sign detection,
practice of high hygiene levels including washing and drying of feet daily specifically between toes,
use soft loofah sponge for mild exfoliation,
treatment of cuts or wounds with quality antiseptic solution and dressing until healed,
check feet as well as toenails for cuts, sores, bruises and overall health,
Never walk barefoot even indoors
Choose & wear only correct-fitting footwear
