Diabetes is a difficult disease—hard to manage and full of risk for other complications. While you watch your sugar and carb intake to keep your glucose level steady, you also need to monitor your circulation and nerve health, especially in your extremities. Good diabetic foot care is essential for heading off complications like poor blood flow or nerve damage that can end up threatening life and limb.
Along with getting plenty of sleep and eating well, staying physically active is one of the best things you can do for your health and wellbeing. Researchers continually find new physical, emotional, and even mental benefits from leading an active life. It really seems as though the only downside to regular exercise is the fact there is always a certain degree of injury risk. In New York we love our sports. From professional teams to little leagues, one thing stays the same—the increased possibility of foot or ankle injuries. The most common types of injuries are strains, sprains, and fractures, all of which should be treated promptly and patiently. By taking the time to heal correctly and safely, you keep your body in tiptop shape and reduce your chances of further injuries with even more time on the bench. If you do experience pain, sometimes it might be hard to tell what type of injury you have incurred. Mark Gasparini, D.P.M. can diagnose your problem and determine the appropriate treatment.
