Safeguard the Health of Your Feet

Diabetic foot care protects and heals your feet to ensure you don’t lose function or mobility due to diabetes. At Michfoot Surgeons, Randy Leff, DPM, and other podiatry specialists offer comprehensive diabetic foot care focused on prevention and early intervention.

Michfoot Surgeons Diabetic Care
People with diabetes are more likely to develop foot problems due to high blood sugar.

Over time, high blood sugar can cause nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) and blood vessel narrowing, which can prevent you from feeling injuries and inhibit your ability to heal wounds.

Diabetic foot care addresses nerve and vascular damage and also helps people with diabetes treat and prevent complications like foot ulcers (non-healing wounds) and Charcot foot (collapse of the foot arch due to nerve damage).

Additionally, diabetic foot care addresses many other foot issues common in people with diabetes, such as:

  • Ingrown toenails
  • Bunions
  • Fungal infections
  • Corns and calluses

Diabetic foot care at Michfoot Surgeons helps you stay vigilant regarding your foot health while also helping you deal with problems immediately.

Diabetic foot care is a major part of your diabetes management plan. In addition to seeing your doctor for overall diabetes management at least once a year, you should visit Michfoot Surgeons annually for specific diabetic foot care management.

In addition to your yearly appointments, which focus mainly on prevention, we encourage you to reach out to us for help anytime you develop new foot problems, such as:

  • Injuries
  • Slow-healing cuts, blisters, punctures or other types of wounds
  • Foot skin discoloration
  • Foot swelling
  • Tingling or foot pain
  • Foot numbness
  • Change in the shape of your foot
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoe
    • Slow-healing wounds are of particular importance. Due to reduced blood flow, healing often takes much longer than it normally would. This long period of healing increases the risk of infection, gangrene (tissue death) and, eventually, amputation.

      Fortunately, Michfoot Surgeons can expertly treat diabetic foot wounds, address symptoms, and help you avoid complications.

Michfoot Surgeons provides comprehensive diabetic foot care that includes:

  • Nail trimming
  • Wound debridement (removal of dead skin around a wound)
  • Corn and callus removal
  • Prescription diabetic shoes
  • Custom orthotics
  • Wound care
  • Bako Clinical Therapeutic™ Solutions products
