Diabetes is a complex condition that can affect every part of your body, including your feet. Diabetic patients often deal with pain, numbness and tingling sensations as a result of peripheral diabetic neuropathy in the nerves. Nerve damage is just one of many effects diabetes can have on a patient’s foot, and it is important to control blood glucose, blood sugar and insulin levels in order to prevent complications. Baton Rouge Foot Care offers podiatric care to diabetics in the Baton Rouge area, so don’t hesitate to come to us for compassionate and professional treatment.
