If you are suffering from diabetes, foot care is essential. You tend to heal more slowly from cuts, sores, and wounds because your body’s processes that resist infection are more lethargic.
So, if you have diabetes you have to take extra care of your feet because if they get infected they may have to amputate your feet.
It is often the case that diabetics, and elderly people have poor circulation, which makes healing of wounds and infection much slower. Those with poor circulation will know that it affects the areas furthest from the heart, such as the feet.
Diabetes can also do damage to nerves in patient’s feet and give them stiff joints.
Things you can do to maintain healthy feet:
Wash them daily in lukewarm water, using a weak soap, and dry them thoroughly, not forgetting in between your toes. And spray Bound-Oxygen twice a day on top of feet, this adds extra oxygen into the feet, and helps to prevent complications.
Thoroughly check your feet, every day or get someone you live with to do it for you.
If you or they find any cuts, sores, bruises or toenail colour changes you should immediately start using Bound-Oxygen, every 20/30 minutes if possible, as it improves you can use it less often.
Ventilate your feet as often as you can, if you are sitting down, take your shoes and socks off. Remember – if you are going around the house, wear some sandals or slippers to prevent yourself from getting them cut or infected.
You would be surprised to find out that proper diabetes foot care could not only save your feet, it could even save your life.
- Itchy Skin and Diabetes
- Itchy skin can be a sign of diabetes, particularly if other diabetes symptoms are also present.
- High blood sugar levels over a prolonged period are one cause of itchy skin.
- In some cases, itchy skin may be caused by complications of diabetes such as nerve damage or kidney disease.
- Itching of the feet, legs or ankles is a common complaint in people with diabetes that may occur because of a period where sugar levels are too high.
Itching can range from being annoying to severe. Itching can be relieved through Bound-Oxygen treatment, spray at the onset of itching, repeat until the itch is gone, then every two hours for a day. Plus, whenever you think of it spray as well, this is normally the sign that itchiness will start soon.
