DIABETIC PREVENTIVE CARE

Peripheral neuropathy is the most common factor leading to amputation in people with diabetes. In diabetes, peripheral neuropathy is an automically diffuse process affecting sensory and autonomic nerve fibers. Symptoms typically begin in the toes and advances towards the feet and ankles. This loss of protective sensation (LOPS) does not allow people to feel minor trauma from pressure, thermal (heat/cold) or chemical sources. When foot ulcers or sores are present, the LOPS inhibits healing of the wound.

Foot Examinations

 

Peripheral neuropathy with LOPS is a localized illness of the feet. Foot examinations for these patient's are necessary to allow for early intervention in serious complications like ulcerations, hospitalzation and amputation. Most insurances, including Medicare cover evaluation and treatment of the feet every 6 months.
