New Trends in Diabetsis reported by Panama City Podiatrist

In a recent study reported by Dr. Burton S. Schuler foot specialist , podiatrist , foot doctor of Panama City, Fl ;  from The Institute for Alternative Futures entitled United States’ Diabetes Crisis: Today and Future Trends,   several far-reaching public health consequences were stated. In it The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia reports that approximately 28 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes; and almost 80 million more people have “pre diabetes” symptoms.  In 2007, the cost of pre diabetes and diabetes was estimated at about $220 billion and will continue to go up yearly.  This will   cause greater demands upon all types of medical doctors, nutritionists, educators, nurses, and other professionals who interact with diabetic and prediabetic.    Dr.  Schuler who has treated thousands diabetes patients’ over three decades, in private practice  feels that many of these patients  can  avoid the foot problems associated with  Diabetsis  but finding out  if they have  a common foot  deformity known as the “Morton’s Toe”– short first metatarsal bone.

A short first toe can intensify complications for diabetics because the foot’s weight is unevenly distributed since the first toe does not do the work it should be doing.  You can imagine that if you already have a condition like Morton’s Toe—that can lead to bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, and other foot problems—then you are setting yourself up for complications if it remains untreated).  . He also shows how to find out,   on his www.FootCare4U.com website  if you have a Morton’s Toe or not. Then if you do have a Morton’s Toe   Schuler then shows  how to make a simple toe pad that can be placed under the first toe to properly  redistribute  the weight on the foot

While diabetes may not be as simple to treat, correcting other foot problems can go a long way to ensure that bad feet can’t be misdiagnosed as diabetic neuropathy–burning pain and numbness in the feet   Such a misdiagnosis can lead you down a path of more doctors and specialists—such as neurologists—when a trip to the podiatrist’s office and a diagnosis of Morton’s Toe can alleviate pain.  This is news to consider as we figure out ways to militate against the growing diabetes epidemic and all of its accompanying medical complications.
