Diabetes Awareness Month 2021

November is National Diabetes Month, a time when we should all team up to bring attention to diabetes.

Diabetics are advised to have their feet examined by a podiatrist on an annual basis. They should also maintain regular visits with their primary care physician or endocrinologist to ensure their sugar levels are within a normal range.

Diabetics are advised to examine their feet on a nightly basis to ensure there is no formation of redness or drainage on either of their feet or toes, any discoloration or irritation in between the toes, and any callus or breakdown of the skin on either the top or bottom of the feet.
