If you have diabetes then you should pay particular attention to the health of your feet. This is because many people with diabetes have problems with circulation, balance and numbness – these conditions can all contribute to little foot problems becoming big ones. If you have diabetes, it is important that you visit our podiatrist several times a year for a diabetic foot exam. When you need diabetic foot care in Long Beach, you will receive top-notch treatment from our expert foot doctor at New York Podiatry Care.

Diabetic foot care in Long Beach is so important because if you have diabetes you may be susceptible to a wide range of foot problems. Not only do diabetics need to be concerned about foot wounds, but smaller foot problems can become larger if left untreated. If a diabetic has a corn, callus, fungal toenails, or even an ingrown toenail, it should be promptly treated at our office. This way you will be sure that a small, annoying problem does not become one that threatens your system with a major infection. When you come in for a diabetic foot exam, we will check your feet for any ulcerations or infections, and be able to prevent further problems from developing by offering prompt and thorough treatment. If a wound is found on your foot that is not healing, it is important that you come and see us right away. We will be able to properly clean, treat and dress the wound so that it can properly heal. Then, you will need to come to our office on a recurring basis so that we can frequently attend to treating the wound until it is thoroughly healed. This way you will be sure that the wound will not get out of hand – it will simply heal with no complications.
