Foot care for people with diabetes
Take care of your feet when you have diabetes.
When you have diabetes , you should take care of your feet to avoid complications that can become very serious, such as ulcers that can lead to amputation. Make sure you wear appropriate footwear, do not walk barefoot, and do not stay too long with your feet in the water.
If you see blisters, a cut, swelling of the foot or even a bruise, see a specialist immediately. At home, every day, check the sensitivity of your feet and their elasticity. If your feet are dry , remember to hydrate them thoroughly with, for example, DIAMANCEL foot cream made from plants which also provides real freshness.
Most importantly, if you see calluses, don't let them set in. Gently use the Diamancel rasp # 20 coarse grit, in real diamond, which will dislodge calluses through efficient, effortless and above all painless work. Then finish to soften your feet with the rasp # 21 fine grit or the foot callus buffer #10 fine.
Wash and dry your feet well, including between the toes, a very important step for people with diabetes, and moisturize again with the foot cream.
For the toenails, you must cut them straight, never shorter than your toes and then file them with the # 6 file.
In short, the feet of a person with diabetes must be monitored every day.
