Diabetic Footcare

When you are a diabetic, it is very important to take special care of your feet. There are many complications in the feet that can arise from poorly monitored diabetes and poor foot care. It is important to see a podiatrist regularly for trimming of nails and calluses, as well as an overall checkup on the health of your feet, especially if you have a hard time seeing or reaching your feet. The good news is that Medicare has special coverage for diabetic footcare, including nail and callus trimming every 61 days, diabetic shoes, and wound care.
