Diabetic Foot Care & Wound Care

DIABETIC FOOT CARE

Diabetes has become an epidemic in this country. If you have diabetes, it is essential that you have your feet evaluated by a podiatrist. Dr. Shermi Parikh is an expert in diabetic foot care.

Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system, and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation or lack of sensation after poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores and non-healing wounds, which may lead to ulcers.

These wounds can also develop into serious infections that can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life.

With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing peripheral neuropathy. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can be pain, numbness, tingling, and a burning sensation in your feet.

We recommend that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation. We will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and determine if you have peripheral neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, we’ll design a treatment plan specifically for you.

If you’re a diabetic, schedule an appointment for a complete evaluation immediately so that we can provide you with the care you’ll need to minimize possible complications.

DIABETIC WOUND CARE (FOOT ULCERS)

Having an open wound increases the chances of infection. If you have a non-healing wound on your lower extremity, it is essential that you act to get it healed as quickly as possible to prevent infection and further complications. If you have diabetes, you are especially at risk for complications. The sooner a wound is treated, the greater the patient’s chances are of healing.

When you first come to our office, Dr. Parikh will use the latest technology to perform a comprehensive neurologic, vascular, and orthopedic exam. Once the wounds are healed, patients receive follow-up to help avoid future problems. So, if you have a non-healing wound on your foot, ankle, or leg – especially if you’re diabetic – we strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment to see us as soon as possible.
