BV Foot Clinic: Winter Can Be the Kicker for Diabetics

                                                                               Winter Can Be the Kicker for Diabetics

While diabetics must always worry about keeping their feet healthy, winter is the kicker, as the cold weather can cause dry, cracked skin, which can trigger infections. If you have diabetes, dry your feet thoroughly after washing them, and check every day, for blisters, sores, or other problems; and wear thickly-padded footwear to keep your feet warm and dry, along with soft, thick, absorbent socks. Better yet, stay a step ahead of winter foot problems, and let us give you an exam, and a customized foot care program.
