- Check your feet everyday for calluses, blisters, dry skin, cracks between your toes and on your heels. If you can’t lift your foot, put a mirror on the floor and hold your foot over it to look for problem areas.
- Use a thick moisturizer on the feet but avoid putting it between toes where the moisture can allow infection to develop.
- See a licensed medical provider who specializes in diabetic foot care at least once a year and more often if prescribed.
- Any open cut, blister or sore on your feet needs to be seen by a licensed healthcare professional immediately.
- Try to hit your blood glucose targets.
