If you've been diagnosed with diabetes then your doctor has probably told you that impact that this condition can have on many systems and parts of the body, particularly your feet. Diabetic feet require special care and attention to prevent ulcers and open wounds that can lead to serious and potentially dangerous infections. This is why it's important to add a podiatrist to your team that you can turn to for regular preventive care, as well as for wound care and other immediate treatments.
