    Podiatrist Cites New Information About Diabetes

    8WB3EFSE2VTB

    In a new article Dr. Burton S. Schuler foot doctor, foot care specialist (Podiatrist) of Panama City, Fl cites new important data from the national known organization The Institute for Alternative Futures

     In the United States’ Diabetes Crisis: Today and Future Trends, the institute states several important trends that are important in the future regarding far-reaching public health consequences.  According to the report, the CDC in Atlanta reports that approximately 26 plus million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes; and around 80 million more people have “pre diabetes” symptoms. This is approximately 28% of the U.S. population   In article also says in the past 5 years the cost of pre diabetes and diabetes was estimated at $218 billion and will rise.  As more patients experience disease progression and require clinical care, the health care system, and all kinds of health care providers, will feel the impact of this public health crisis     http://www.altfutures.org/diabetes2025/ 

    Dr. Schuler says theses professionals who interact with diabetic and prediabetic people have an important role to play in helping patients’ needs. He says many of these diabetic patients m have foot problems that can be treated easily by finding out if they have “Morton’s Toe”– short first metatarsal bone. He has been a professional member of the American Diabetsis Association for over 30 years 

    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   Dr.  Schuler prescribes a simple toe pad that can be placed under the first toe to redistribute proper balance in 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   www.footcare4u.com/category/diabetic-foot-care/.  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.  Again this is important news to consider as we figure out ways to militate against the growing diabetes epidemic and all of its accompanying medical complications.
