Foot Problems Can Be Serious

Diabetes can damage nerves in your feet and cause neuropathy. Diabetes can also change blood flow, making it harder for small problems to heal properly. In some cases, minor injuries can quickly become serious infections. Take a look at your feet daily. Are they healthy? Some signs of foot problems can include:

  • Red, spots, blisters, corns, or calluses
  • Drainage on your sock
  • Bad Odors
  • A tingling, cold or burning sensation
  • Numbness
  • Red streaks or changes in skin color

Do you qualify for diabetic footwear?

Medicare or private insurance may cover the costs of preventative extra depth footwear if you are diabetic and have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Poor circulation
  • Foot deformity
  • Peripheral neuropathy with a history of callus formation
  • Previous amputation of the foot or part of the foot
  • History of foot ulceration

We can help to see if you qualify for Medicare covered footwear. Call or message us today for an appointment!
