Why should a patient with Diabetes see a Podiatrist regularly?
Patients with Diabetes usually will have circulation problems with their feet caused by elevated sugar levels. Also most diabetics possess a decrease in the sensation of their feet causing a greater chance for infection and in many cases ulcers and gangrene. Even faulty trimming of the toenails could result in amputation in a diabetic patient.
What causes ingrown toenails and what is the best treatment?
Ingrown nails are nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the skin, often causing infection. They are frequently caused by improper nail trimming, but also by shoe pressure, injury, fungus infection, heredity, and poor foot structure. Toenails should be trimmed straight across, slightly longer than the end of the toe, with toenail clippers. If they become painful or infected, contact our office. We may remove the ingrown portion of the nail, and if the condition reoccurs frequently, we may permanently remove the nail.
