A new smart product was released this week, and this time it is a pair of smart shoes (Lechal) that counts calories, is a pedometer, and tells you which way to go.  After entering an address through an app, either the right or left shoe will vibrate to let you know which direction you need to turn.  Just as these shoes can guide you in the right direction, podiatrists can help guide newly diagnosed diabetics to a healthier life.

What Symptoms are there in the Feet of a Newly Diagnosed Diabetic?

As a newly diagnosed diabetic, it is important to take good care of your feet.  Symptoms of diabetes often show up in the feet and can include decreased blood flow and a loss of sensation.

What Complications are seen in the Feet of Diabetics?

Complications often happen because of the symptoms above.  This can include:

  • Less chance of healing cuts or wounds
  • Foot ulcers
  • Gangrene, Amputation of part of the foot, the whole foot, or even part of the leg

Help!  I am a Newly Diagnosed Diabetic!
