November is Diabetes Awareness Month. According to the American diabetes association, nearly 30 million children and adults have diabetes in this country alone. This does not even include the millions of people who have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The ADA makes it their mission to raise awareness of this disease. It also aims to educate the public about the complications that can occur due to diabetes, including foot problems.  Very often as a newly diagnosed diabetic, or even one who has had long standing diabetes, you should have your feet checked by a podiatrist.  Our doctors at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic will do a thorough comprehensive diabetic foot exam and make recommendations on shoe gear and foot-care.  So this month, if you have diabetes, make an effort to take charge of your health and make an appointment with our office today.
