This is the Reason Why Diabetes Patients Should Never Walk Barefoot Even Inside Their Homes.

Diabetics should NEVER WALK BAREFOOT EVEN INSIDE THEIR HOMES

Diabetes destroys the nerves in the foot which can lead to decreased sensations, so they don’t know they may be injured

It also destroys arteries which affects Oxygen delivery needed for healing.

The combination of reduced oxygen and increased blood sugar creates an environment that makes it difficult for wounds to heal.

These wounds become infected because the high sugar encourages germs to grow.

All these may lead to that part of the foot dying and needing to be cut off.

They can help their foot by;

Checking for cuts or bruises EVERY DAY.

NEVER wash the foot in HOT WATER.

Never wear tight shoes.

Walk often.

Cut your toe nails smoothly and remove any sharp edges.

Ask your doctor to look at it every time you visit the hospital

Take your drugs.

It’s better to buy footwears in the late afternoon when the feet are at their largest rather than in the morning when they seem smaller

Moisturize your feet daily to prevent it from getting dry.

Wear sandals with Velcro fasteners rather than buckles. Buckles could injure the feet.

Your shoes should have a soft insole to create a warm and comfy atmosphere for the feet and they should never be pointed.

Report any sore or discoloration as soon as possible to your doctor for prompt treatment.

Once a patient has a wound, achieving & maintaining a healthy body weight can help maximize wound healing because obesity can negatively affect glycemic control

Often just losing extra weight can help with glucose control and, in turn, wound healing.
