”Old sugar friends” know that in the summer, they should stay away from high-sugar fruits such as watermelon, lychee and longan; they also know that diabetes itself is not terrible, and its terrible is its complications.
But most of them may not know that summer is the high season of diabetic diabetic foot.
In the summer, the old sugar friends often control the “mouth” but ignore the “foot”.
In fact, diabetes develops to a certain stage, and tiny wounds in the foot, such as shoe squeezing, abrasion, cleft palate or improper treatment of “corns” can cause diabetic foot.
Summer is a good season for diabetic foot.

When the toenail is softened after the foot is washed, the toenail should be implanted. It should not be cut too short and too close to the skin to avoid damage to the skin and cause infection.
It is even more difficult to stick irritant drugs such as corn cream on the corns, and it is not possible to use knives, scissors, etc. for implantation.
Do not wear sandals.
Even in the summer, it is not advisable to wear sandals or hard shoes that wear toes and heels.
Choose soft, breathable cloth shoes and moccasins.
Check the shoes for foreign objects before each wear.
