BV Foot Clinic: Make Sure Your Shoes are Sans Sand

Make Sure Your Shoes are Sans Sand

If you love walking barefoot on the beach, beware of hidden hazards, including broken glass, shells, and rusty metal fragments. Of course, even the sand can make tiny cuts in your feet; and if you’re diabetic, that can lead to infection and serious problems. 

So, be careful at the beach and remember the importance of practicing diligent diabetic foot care.  And if you want to take any sand home, make sure it’s not in your shoes, where it can really do some damage.
