Frequently Asked Questions

Is it good for people with diabetes to soak their feet?

With diabetes soaking your feet is not a good idea. In fact, many healthcare providers do not recommend soaking since it may dry out your skin or increase your risk of infection. Speak with your doctor if you decide to soak your feet; it can potentially increase your risk for further foot problems. It is important to inspect and wash your feet daily, but not soak them.

Why is foot care important in diabetes?

Feet problems are one of the main complications with diabetes. High blood sugar levels may cause damage to the nerves located in your feet, called peripheral neuropathy. It commonly affects both the legs, feet, and toes. Because of this, foot care is extremely important for people with diabetes to ward off the risk of infection. Other factors that contribute to foot health risks include circulation problems and thick or peeling toenails. Consider seeing a podiatrist for your foot care needs. Leading a healthy lifestyle is so important for those with diabetes to help decrease future complications.

Is foot care free when you have diabetes?

You may be eligible for some or most of your foot care cost depending on your insurance provider. For example, those with Medicare are covered for the following: "Medicare covers yearly foot exams if you have diabetes related lower leg nerve damage that can increase the risk of limb loss. This may include treatment for foot ulcers and calluses, and toenail management, based on exam results."" Check your policy to determine if foot care is covered, and if and how much it will cost (after deductibles and co pays) with your insurance.

How do you treat a diabetic foot wound?

If a diabetic foot ulcer has formed on your foot visit your podiatrist, as soon as possible. You will need to cleanse and bandage the wound daily. It's extremely important to keep your wound clean. Ensure your blood glucose levels are under control and that you do not walk around barefoot, both indoors and outdoors.
