The importance of your healthy feet

It is important to look after your feet on a daily basis. This includes hand to foot contact with warm, soapy water during hygiene and inspection for skin colour changes, nail thickening, and any unusual lumps or bumps. While you should be paying attention, a periodic checkup can eliminate or prevent foot deformities. Being a doctor, I have an intimate knowledge of feet and was involved in the care of thousands of patients while at school and residency in California and Washington, DC respectively.

After becoming a pharmacist and working in a community pharmacy, I was eager to take on more responsibility and be more involved in the health of others. Podiatry was appealing because the foot allows us to maintain our mobility which plays such a critical role in our physical and mental health. Not being able to enjoy walking, running or engage in healthy exercise because of foot pain, fear of injury, or concern for limitations brought on by diabetes are challenges that drive me to succeed for all of my patients.

How diabetes affects your feet

The prevalence of diabetes and pre-diabetes is relatively high, affecting over 9 million Canadians. This will increase over the next decade and beyond. Unfortunately, diabetic complications involving the foot can occur if your diabetes is not adequately controlled.
