Even though diabetes is in the media and there are many ways to be aware of the disease, it often goes misdiagnosed. Most primary care doctors and health care professionals feel that it is because men often do not like talking about their health. June is Mens health month, and the American Diabetes Association is launching a campaign to bring the awareness to the forefront. One of the main barriers, according to an article in Diabetes management, is lack of education and understanding of the disease, and the fear of lifestyle change that it may bring. One of the most important aspects of education in diabetes is how to care for your feet. At Prairie path Foot and Ankle Clinic, once of our main goals is educating our patients on diabetic foot care.
