The American Diabetes Association reports five-million lower extremity amputations each year with almost half of those being diabetics. The other fifty percent that are not diabetic may not know they need to be concerned about foot infection.
Wear and tear throughout the years are hard on feet. Bad circulation, disease, poorly trimmed nails, and wearing shoes that don’t fit simply compound the problems. Foot difficulties can be the first sign of serious medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, nerve, and circulatory disorders.
