Promotion of foot health in diabetes.
Clin Excell Nurse Pract. 1999 Jul; 3(4):210-3.CE

Abstract

Foot ulcers are a complication of diabetes mellitus. Patient education, foot care, and diligent assessment by the practitioner are necessary to ensure adequate foot health. Patients should be instructed to inspect the feet daily for ulcers and signs of infection, and instructed on daily cleansing of the feet with a mild soap and application of moisturizers to the feet. Practitioners should include assessments for neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, foot deformities, condition of the toenails, and footwear. This proactive approach is important in the prevention of foot ulcers in diabetes mellitus.
