How Can I Prevent Losing a Toe?

Two common complications associated with diabetes are neuropathy and poor circulation. Nerve damage can inhibit your ability to feel heat, cold, and pain. Reduced circulation can compromise the healing process when an injury does occur. Patients are at risk for losing a toe or foot when an injury develops into a non-healing wound or ulcer. Infection can set in, and if it goes into the bone or leads to gangrene, amputation is often necessary to save the rest of the leg.

Amputation prevention starts with careful inspection of your feet on a daily basis. Look for changes to your skin color or shape of your foot, redness, warmth, blisters, cuts, scrapes, painful areas, and new corns or calluses. Remember: even the smallest injury could turn into a serious complication without treatment, so address any symptom promptly. Contact Dallas Podiatry Works as soon as possible for appropriate treatment. Keep your glucose levels under control, inspect your feet every day, and contact us at the first sign of anything suspicious.
