http://www.austinfootandankle.com Foot problems need to be taken very seriously if the patient has diabetes. Diabetics often develop a condition called neuropathy where the nerves are damaged. Because of this, they may not be able to feel the extent of injuries in their foot. Education is the best way of preventing and quickly treating diabetics with foot problems. Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS has written a book called “Diabetes and Your Feet” which is available for free on his website. As Dr. Thomajan says, "I am completely committed and absolutely dedicated to making sure that I can educate everyone in the greater Austin area with information and good sound decisions about the health of their feet and ankles. That's why I wrote these books and why I give them free to anyone that wants them. This allows me to stay true to my mission to educate people about their foot health." Knowledge of proper foot care can prevent many injuries before they occur and help you get back to normal faster if an injury does occur. If you or a loved one has diabetes and is looking for more information on foot injuries, don’t hesitate to call Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists at 512-328-8900.
