Diabetic foot problems cause more hospital stays than any other complication of diabetes. This book tells you what to do for good foot cares. It can help you stand on your own two feet for a lifetime! -Neil M. Scheffler, DPM, FACFAS What should I do if I nick myself while trimming my toenails? How can I tell whether my shoes fit? What should I do if I have a bunion? How do I avoid getting foot ulcers? What kind of tests do I need for peripheral vascular disease (PVD)? These are just a few of the 101 questions answered in this indispensable new book for people with diabetes. If you have diabetes, you are susceptible to poor circulation and nerve damage. And when nerve damage hits, you lose feeling in your feet. Simple cuts may go undetected, which can lead to open sores, ulcers, and even amputation. If you follow the good advice in this book for everything from socks to surgery, you stand a very good chance of keeping both your feet healthy and whole.
