Diabetics in Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County

Podiatrists have an extremely important role to play in the prevention and management of complications of the foot in those with diabetes. All those who are at risk for a problem should have that risk status assessed at least annually - call us at 734-994-3668 to make that scheduled visit. Our Podiatrist will communicate this risk status to other members of your health care team. Advice should be given on how to reduce the chance of damage happening, what to do to prevent it and what to do if something does go wrong.

Regular foot care from a Podiatrist is a key way to prevent problems from developing in those who are at risk.

Because diabetes is a disease affecting many parts of the body, successful management requires a team approach.Our podiatrist can be an integral part of the treatment team and has been successful in preventing amputations. The keys to amputation prevention are early recognition and regular foot screenings performed by a podiatrist, the foot and ankle expert.

Diabetes Warning Signs:

  • Skin color changes
  • Swelling of the foot or ankle

  • Pain in the legs
  • Open sores on the feet that are slow to heal
