QUICK ADVICES: how can you help yourself

REGULAR FEET CHECK-UPS

Check-up your feet by yourself.  If you have nerve or vein damages, you have to check-up your feet every day.  Most easily you can check-up the feet after washing or after a shower when you dry the feet with a towel or before putting on the socks.

Don’t overlook areas between fingers. For easier sole check-up help yourself with a mirror.

FOOT CARE

Wash your feet with running tepid water and mild soap. If your don’t feel your feet – measure the water temperature or at least check the heat of the water with your hand. Wash the feet as a whole but one by one. If the feet have some open wounds, be careful to make the water run away from the wound.
After washing wipe and dry the feet with soft towel, even between the fingers.
After washing and drying put a neutral moisturising cream on the dry feet, but not between the fingers.
Wear comfortable shoes and clean socks. Buy shoes in the afternoon when the feet are already swelled. The inner  part of a shoe should be smooth and the leather soft. Socks should be without distinct stitches.

If your feet start to swell wear shoes with shoelaces that must be well relaxed.

If your feet are constantly cold – wear warm socks, even by night if needed. Don’t get warm by electric cushions or other hot objects or devices that can burn you without even feeling the pain.

Clip the nails correctly. A quick advice for those who have damaged sense of touch and of pain: wear footwear to avoid injury. Don’t walk barefoot if you don’t feel your feet well. Before wearing the shoes check inside the shoes for any small object. Check also the socks that are fitting the feet without any wrinkle.

WHAT KIND OF FOOTWEAR IS APPROPRIATE?

Even though you don’t have feet issues let the shoes be comfortable. For longer walks running shoes are most appropriate shoes to wear. If you have visible nerve damages or poor blood circulation protective shoes are necessarily to wear in your home or outdoor.
Walking shoes should have enough room for fingers, soft upper part, removable shoe sock and thick rubbery sole.

PEDICURE ONLY UNDER SURVEILLANCE

Regular pedicure is very important part of foot care. The pedicure is performed by pedicurist who knows that diabetics are endangered group and knows how to deal with diabetic feet.
