Findlay, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2013 -- Advanced Footcare Clinic and Dr. Thomas F. Vail, DPM, Findlay foot surgery, are pleased to announce that diabetic foot problems can be alleviated by using techniques and methods available through the podiatrist in Findlay. Diabetic foot care is particularly important for the nearly six percent of United States citizens who have diabetes. The American Diabetes Association counts close to sixteen million diabetic patients in the U. S. At present.
According to Dr. Vail, Findlay OH foot surgery authority, "Neuropathy, or nervous system damage, affects sixty to seventy percent of diabetic patients. It is a major issue that can cause the loss of feeling in the feet or hands. Diabetic podiatric care effectively eliminates many of the conditions that can exacerbate the progression of neuropathy."
"When you lose feeling in your feet" he continues, "you will often fail to register temperature extremes in the feet. You may be unable to recognize that your feet are being burned or overly chilled. If you get a scratch or serious wound, you may not realize it unless you are doing a physical visual examination regularly. Infection can arise and be harder to reverse."
Dr. Findlay's care suggestions include techniques to address specific problems such as ingrown nails, bunions and structural problems. The procedures he offers may prevent the need for more invasive techniques. In addition, the doctor explains and monitors home care techniques that each diabetic patient should be following.
