DIABETES AND BEST FOOT CARE PRODUCTS

DIABETES AND BEST

FOOT CARE PRODUCTS

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

       It stands to reason that one of the best ways to ensure that your Feet are receiving quality care is to ensure that you are using Quality Products.  With the Consumer Market the way it is today, we all can use a little help in determining which ones we should be looking at.  As a result, we are taking this opportunity to give a few suggestions in assisting in your Product choice.

       FOR BATHING YOUR FEET – Without a

doubt, Pumice Stones and Scrubbing Brushes are far superior than just plain washcloths.  We would suggest a soft but firm brush for cleaning.

2

FOR INSPECTING YOUR FEET – You are, undoubtedly!, wondering why we are picturing a car engine for INSPECTING YOUR FEET!  Well, we have found that many people have discovered that the best mirrors for inspecting the bottom of your Feet without being a contortionist is to use the mirrors that a mechanic uses when working on your car!

FOR KEEPING YOUR FEET COVERED INDOORS – The challenge here is to make sure that you are protecting your feet!  While Slipper Socks are exceedingly comfortable, they may not be particularly protective.  As a result, you should look for footwear that totally encompasses your Feet and has a “hard” bottom to protect from tacks, pebbles and splinters!

   3

FOR MOISTURIZING YOUR FEET – While keeping your Feet Moist and Supple is important, that’s not the only issue to keep in mind.  Again, we want to give our Feet the maximum amount of protect, so when you buy lotions for your Feet make sure they also contain antibacterial and antifungal additives.

FOR TRIMMING YOUR TOENAILS – The intent here is to assist in avoiding ingrown Toenails, which can lead to infections.  With that thought in mind, you are going to want clippers that are “heavy duty,” which make sure you actually cut the nails and not just break them off.

       We hope that this insight into Foot Care Products helps you make your decisions in the future.  If you have any questions regarding what we have discussed, please be sure to contact your Podiatrist, or seek assistance from the AVEON STAFF!

DIABETES AND “BAD HABITS” THAT RAISE THE RISK!

DIABETES AND “BAD HABITS” THAT RAISE THE RISK!

Picture1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

 

Have you ever noticed that it seems much easier to break a “good” habit than it is a “bad” one!  That is but yet anotherdilemma that Diabetics have to face – - especially when the “habits” have a propensity to adversely affect your Diabetic condition.  With that thought in mind, following is a list of Bad Habits that you need to work diligently to get rid of!

 Picture2

 AVOIDING FISH – Fish is a delicious and healthy form of protein, and one that if you are avoiding you need to re-think!  Their consumption is also a good way to combat Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Clogged Arteries.

BEING A NIGHT OWL – Studies have shown that those who get less than six hours of sleep a night run the risk of disrupting Hormones that control Blood Glucose and Hunger, which can lead to weight gain.”  To the Diabetic, especially a Type 2 Diabetic, Sleep truly should be a priority.

 Picture3

EMOTIONAL EATING – Interestingly enough, feeling Hopeless, Worthless, or even Sad, can tend to lead to overeating and weight gain, studies from both Jordan and Holland revealed.  One of the results of Depression, it seems, is that we tend not to take as good of care of ourselves as we should!  Therefore, it is imperative that we do our best to avoid Stress Eating!

INDULGING IN STARCHY CARBS – If you need a “Rule of Thumb,” and most of us do, the American Diabetes Association suggests that we should only cover one quarter of our plates with carbs, whether it be Potatoes, Rice, Pasta, White Bread or any combination thereof.

Picture4

MIDNIGHT SNACKING – The ideal situation is to consume three balanced meals a day and then call it quits.  However, if you must indulge in something before bedtime, enhance your chance for Healthy success by not even buying such items as donuts, chips, and other items that will curtail weight loss!

SIPPING SUGARY DRINKS – One of the reasons much of America is overweight is the fact that we tend to drink our calories!  And, for the most part, the calories from things such as Sweet Tea, Soda, and various other sugar laden beverages are “empty calories” as the sugars therein have no nutritional value.

 Picture5

SKIMPING ON PRODUCE – While this may come as a surprise to some, it has been determined that lots of veggies in your diet helps with Blood Sugar control and Weight Loss.  The ideal situation, of course, is to avoid those vegetables that are high in starch and concentrate on such things as broccoli, spinach, squash and tomatoes.

       There you have it – - Habits that it would behoove you to break as soon as possible if you are a Diabetic!  And, as we are sure you have noticed, with each Bad Habit you break you should insert in its place a Good one!!!

DIABETES AND NINE TIPS FOR FOOT CARE

DIABETES AND NINE TIPS

FOR FOOT CARE

 1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

       Summer is here and the temptation to go barefoot is increasing exponentially!  That is why that we, as Diabetics, must make an even more concentrated effort to ensure that we properly tend to our feet.  To assist you in that undertaking, we are presenting this advice for your consideration.  As you will note, our suggestions extend far beyond keeping your feet dressed!

  • Inspect Your Feet Daily – Things you will especially want to look for are any new blisters, cuts or red spots; if any swelling is taking place; or if anything is appears to be out of the ordinary.
  • Beware of Your Toenails – One of the main purposes of keeping your Toenails is trimmed is to protect you from scratching yourself which can lead to unnecessary infections.
  • Don’t Smoke – As you well know, there are a plethora of health advantage in avoiding cigarettes, and helping to control Diabetes is just one of them.

 2

Dry Your Feet Thoroughly – “Damp” Feet, especially between the toes, leads to the existence of germs that can allow infections.

  • Exercise – This helps with Blood Circulation, and can be something as simple as walking on a regular basis.

 3

Track Your Blood Sugar Levels – This will allow you to determine if they are stable.

  • Insist on “Quality” Socks – The best, of course, are “Diabetic Socks,” which are softer and not as tight around your calves.

 4

Keep Feet as Clean as Possible – This is accomplished, of course, by frequent foot washing. Especially concentrate on the bottoms of your Feet and between the toes.

  • See a Podiatrist Regularly – As well as providing a professional, objective inspection of your Feet, they can, and will!, provide you with additional tips for Foot Care.

Rest assured that you can never give your Feet too much attention or care.  Perhaps the number one piece of advice herein, however, is to be sure to contact your doctor if you see anything new or abnormal regarding your feet!

DIABETES AND A WORKABLE NIGHTTIME ROUTINE

DIABETES AND A WORKABLE

NIGHTTIME ROUTINE

1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

       Most of us live in a hectic world that finds us engaged in either thought or activity for the entirety of our day.  As a result, our Nighttime Routine is often left to chance, and, also as a result, may not be as effective as it might be.  We trust that this article will help you develop a Nighttime Routine, and that you will understand its importance.

       EAT A NUTRITIOUS DINNER – It is

generally agreed that the final meal of the day for the Diabetic should include lean meats, fruits and vegetables and as few “processed foods” as possible.  Another good rule of thumb is that the later in the day you eat dinner, the fewer carbs the meal should include.

 2

DE-STRESS – This can be accomplished in many different ways by many different individuals.  Some general De-Stressing activities, however, including reading and listening to soothing music.

BRUSH AND FLOSS YOUR TEETH – Inasmuch as a Diabetic’s saliva is “sweeter” than the Non-Diabetic’s, they are prone to have more cavities and gum disease.

  3

GET MOVING – This is an interesting challenge, for while we don’t want to “work out” to the point of stimulation, we also don’t particularly want to sit dormant the entire evening.  This can be accomplished by a walk around the block, or perhaps some stretching exercises.  Not only will this help with Insulin Sensitivity, but it will also help you sleep better.

LAY OUT YOUR DIABETES SUPPLIES FOR THE NEXT MORNING – This can run the gamut from preparing your medications to laying out your Blood Sugar Testing Kit in a convenient location for the morrow.

       As you can see, these are all pretty simple activities in themselves, yet, together they provide an ideal foundation each night for the day, and days!, that follow.

DIABETES AND FOOT CARE

DIABETES AND FOOT CARE

 

 1

 AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

While Foot Care is important to all of us, it is especially imperative that the Diabetic pay special attention to their feet. And, there is a whole lot more involved here than one might think!  That is why daily attention to your Feet is a necessity, as well as having a “Battle Plan” for their care.

The first thing we need to be aware of is the fact that proper Circulation is vitally important to the Diabetic.  If proper blood flow is impeded the ability for your feet to heal from cuts and sores is also impeded.  An early sign of this possibly being a problem is experiencing pain or cramps in the back of your legs while walking.

There are several things that can adversely affect proper Blood Flow, including Smoking; high Blood Fats; and high Blood Glucose Levels.  Their affect can be counteracted by controlling Blood Fat levels; keeping your Blood Sugar Levels as normal as possible; taking a brisk walk daily the keep the Blood Flowing and, of course, quit Smoking!!!

 2

       As well as your veins and arteries, another important “Highway” to your feet is the network of nerves.  Damage to these nerves is known as Neuropathy, and result in insensitive, numb, or painful feet.  As a result, blisters, minor cuts, and burns may go undetected, leading to the development of ulcers which may also not be detected.

       There are several ways to enhance your chance of avoiding Foot Injury when you have Damaged Nerves.  These include, but are not limited to:

  • Avoid injury via well-fitting, protective shoes.  There are two important things to consider here: 1) Never wear open-toed shoes; 2) NEVER go barefoot!
  • Be careful to keep your feet an appropriate distance from Radiant Heaters.
  • Check the temperature of your bath water, being sure to make sure it is not HOT!!!
  • Have a Podiatrist treat corns and callouses.
  • Inspect your Feet frequently looking for signs that there may be a problem.
  • Trim toenails carefully!  Be sure to file any rough edges!

 3

       While there is a lot that we can, and should!, do on our own when it comes to proper Foot Care, it is also important that we employ the aid of the professionals, in this case a Podiatrist.  As a general rule of thumb, you should see your Podiatrist no less than once a year.  Other times you should make arrangements to make an appointment include:

  • To treat Corns and Callouses.
  • If your Feet experience Discoloration, Heat, Pain, Swelling or Throbbing.
  • If you have a cut or an injury becomes red and does not heal.

As you can see, there is a lot you can do to avoid severe damage to yourself via your feet.  However, it takes a concentrated effort and is something you must pursue on an on-going basis.

If you, or someone you know, needs help in managing their Diabetes, please call AVEON HEALTH at 480-300-4663 to make an appointment with a member of our staff and allow them to escort you down the path to an improved quality of life for you and your loved ones!  One of the very special services we provide is offered by our on-staff Podiatrist, a professional that every Diabetic should have as part of their “Medical Staff.”

DIABETES AND AN UNLIKELY RISK FACTOR

DIABETES AND AN UNLIKELY

RISK FACTOR

1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

We, as Diabetics, are aware of many of the issues that can catapult someone who is Pre-Diabetic into the realm of Diabetes Type 2.  It is well known that we need to watch our diet; exercise appropriately; avoid smoking and limit our alcohol intake.  But new studies show that there might be another culprit that has previously garnered little or no attention:  Loneliness!

 2

A new study has shown that Loneliness may cause Hormonal changes which, unexpectedly, may create a situation where Type 2 Diabetes develops.  The study was conducted with 4000 adults without Type 2 Diabetes.  They were asked such questions as:

  • How often do you feel you lack companionship?
  • How often do you feel left out?
  • How often do you feel Isolated from others.

After a decade, when the result totals were tallied, it showed that odds were 46 % greater for those individuals who had an issue with Loneliness of contracting Type 2 than those who did not.  According to PhD Ruth Hackett of The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at Kings College, London in the UK, the study showed a strong relationship between Loneliness and the onset of Type 2 Diabetes.

 3

It had already been accepted that Social Isolation created a risk for Type 2 Diabetes, but that is a different issue than Loneliness.  The best way to explain the difference between the two is that Social Isolation is objective, while Loneliness is subjective, where the individual suffers from dissatisfaction with social and personal relationships.

 4

“We can measure the number of close friends or social activities an individual has,” Dr. Andrew Steptoe of UNIVERSITY COLLEGE in London, UK shared.  “This is how we can objectively determine if one is, in fact, suffering from Social Isolation.”

There is, studies have shown, a direct correlation between the amount of contact we have with family members and close friends.  As the number of these contacts decreases, the propensity for Type 2 Diabetes increases.

5

Interestingly enough, reducing Stress may help combat the effects of Loneliness which, according to Dr. Steptoe, presents somewhat of an interesting conundrum, if you would, regarding Loneliness and Stress:  “In an attempt to make more friends and thus feel less Lonely, an individual may very well find the undertaking of seeking new/more friends stressful, which, in essence, may be counterproductive!

As you can see, there is so much more to Type 2 Diabetes than you could ever imagine on your own.  That, of course, is why we provide this Blog, and suggest that you do as much research as you can on your own to increase your knowledge, as knowledge is one of the most important entities in your tool belt to build a “Quality Life” as you live with Diabetes!

DIABETES AND FOOD SURGERY

DIABETES AND FOOT SURGERY

 1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

No doubt about it, Diabetes is a serious issue.  And, if one doesn’t take the necessary steps to help keep it under control, it can become even more serious!  One of the more problematic areas for a Diabetic are the feet, and one of the more serious aspects of foot care is when the situation merits Surgery.

If you, or someone you know and love, faces the possibility of Foot Surgery there are a number of things you should be aware of that will help you enhance the chance of a successful procedure.

 2

       The first thing you will want to do is be sure to follow all Pre-surgical Instructions.  Part of this will include the method of anesthesia being used, as well as other aspects of the actual surgery.  Understand that all of this information is important, and you should make sure you understand everything that is shared with you.

       Another important aspect that you need to be aware of is the necessary preparation for your recovery.  This should be attended to before your Surgery, so things will be in place when the time is necessary.

 3

       There are a number of things that you should be aware of, and attend to both, before and after your Surgery. The first of these is a general health issue:  The suspension of both smoking and drinking.  Both of these can create complication post-surgery, as well as slow down the healing process.

       Another thing that you should constantly be cognizant of is the fact that you have any questions about the Surgery you should ask them immediately.  You should never proceed until you fully understand what will be happening before, during, and after the Surgery!

4

       While cleanliness may be next to Godliness, baths after Foot Surgery are absolutely a no-no.  It is imperative that you only shower, and it is vitally important that you confer with your Podiatrist as to whether or not the surgical site should be allowed to get wet.

       Without a doubt, after your Surgery your doctor will provide you with some pain killers.  The challenge here is that you only take this medication if you absolutely need it.  As you are undoubtedly aware, our Nation is plagued with an Opioid problem, much of what is introduced to people through pain killers.  It is therefore imperative that you use pain killers in extreme measures and not just to battle discomfort!

 6 7

       Once you are at home it will be your responsibility to make sure that you eat nutritious food and that you stay hydrated.  In the case of food, your Podiatrist can assist you by providing you with a list of advantageous Dietary Delights.  While we always need to consume an ample amount of water, after Surgery this is especially true as constipation may become an unwanted problem!

       You will undoubtedly find that your Energy Level after Surgery is going to be more than a little bit reduced.  As a result, you will need to be sure that you have friends and/or family around who can help you with your daily tasks if need be.  Also in regard to your physical capabilities, as soon as your doctor tells you that you can begin physical activity you need to do so right away.  Starting with “light” exercises and progressing as your situation allows will help you to heal more quickly.

       We know that this is a lot to consider, so we would suggest that you go ahead and print this out and put in your files so you can refer to it when needed.  We would also suggest that if you have any questions regarding Foot Surgery that you contact a Doctor right away!

 

If you, or someone you know, needs help in managing their Diabetes, please call AVEON HEALTH at 480-300-4663 to make an appointment with a member of our staff and allow them to escort you down the path to an improved quality of life for you and your loved ones!  One of the very special services we provide is offered by our on-staff Podiatrist, a professional that every Diabetic should have as part of their “Medical Staff.”

DIABETES AND WOUND HEALING

DIABETES AND WOUND HEALING

1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

As you undoubtedly know, Diabetes is one of the several Diseases referred to as “Silent Killers.”  These include, but are not limited to:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure

Though not as drastic, another issue that Diabetics faces is the fact that the process of “Wound Healing” is a much more difficult.  And, quite often, these “Wounds” take place on the feet, thus making the talents of a Podiatrist a most welcome ally in fighting this particular battle.  In this battle, there are five side effects that may impact the healing of wounds for a Diabetic.

1)            Blood Glucose Levels – High Levels can cause High Blood Pressure which, in turn, weakens arteries and narrows blood vessels.  Studies have shown that therapies such as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy may assist the treatment of chronic wounds in Diabetics.

2)            Chronic Inflammation – While Inflammation is a normal part of the wound healing process, for the Diabetic it lasts for a more prolonged period of time.

                                                         2

3)            Circulation Problems – Due to the adverse effects that Diabetes has on various aspects of the Circulatory System, the lack of sufficient oxygen to a wound delays the healing process.

4)            Immune System Inefficiency – Another burden the Diabetic has to bear is the fact that their Immune Cells do not function properly, which creates the risk of Bacterial Infections.

 3

5)            Neuropathy – Due to the fact that Neuropathy “masks” pain by not reporting it to the brain, Wounds have the propensity to develop to a more advanced state as the Diabetic is often not even aware of the fact that they exist until more damage than necessary takes place.

As you can see, there is a whole lot more involved than meets the eye when the Diabetic deals with Wounds.  As a result, we would suggest that special attention is paid to all areas of your body, with a special emphasis placed on the feet, as that is where Wounds often exist without immediate detection.

If you, or someone you know, needs help in managing their Diabetes, please call AVEON HEALTH at 480-300-4663 to make an appointment with a member of our staff and allow them to escort you down the path to an improved quality of life for you and your loved ones!

DIABETES AND THE “LONG HAUL!”

DIABETES AND THE

“LONG HAUL!”

1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

       Depending on how long you have been diagnosed with Diabetes, you may or may not have come to the realization that Diabetes is not a sprint, but, rather, a marathon!  While it is pretty much self- evident that such measures as a better Diet and more Exercise must be immediately implemented, the fact that there are additional long range goals that need to become part of your life pattern is also one that need be considered.  There are several important considerations when establishing these goals, including but not limited to:

1)             Make Your Goals Specific – Both in their Nature, Scope, and Duration.

2)            Ensure that the Goals are Achievable – Reaching “too far” will not only prevent Achievement, but will invoke Frustration as well.

3)            Make Sure Your Goals are Realistic – Again to avoid Frustration.  This might be accomplished by breaking major, long reaching Goals down into manageable increments.

 2

4)            Make Your Goals Measurable – As a result, your Goals should relate to measurable areas such as Weight or A1C levels.

5)            Set a Realistic Timeline for Your Goals – If we set our Timeline too far down the road we may be apt to become discouraged and give up.

Now that we have the foundation for setting Goals, we can take a look at some of the Goals we should probably be considering.  These include, but are not limited to:

3

1)            Journal Your Blood Sugar Levels – There are several advantages to this activity, including keeping track of how different foods you are eating may affect your Levels.

2)            Keep Your Eyes Healthy – A big step in the right direction here is to have an Eye Exam at least yearly!

4

3)            Maintain a Healthy Weight – As well as proper Diet, this can be achieved by controlling such things as sleep and stress.

4)            Manage Chronic Stress – This may take both a concentrated effort and some major life changes.

 5

5)            Prevent Foot Problems – Issues you may have to deal with include:

  • Ulcers/Sores
  • Nerve Damage
  • Poor Blood Flow

The Ultimate issue, of course, would be amputation.

6)            Stop Smoking – Not only does Smoking make you more susceptible to Type 2 Diabetes, it also adversely affects such issues as Poor Blood Flow, Heart Disease, and Eye Problems!

As you can see, once you have determined that you are, in fact, a Diabetic it is important that you acquire a lifestyle that will enhance your chance for as normal of a life as possible.  It will, no doubt, take some effort, but the results will be well worth the time and effort you have devoted to it!

DIABETES AND THE KEY ROLE OF A PODIATRIST IN FOOT CARE

DIABETES AND THE KEY ROLE OF A

PODIATRIST IN FOOT CARE

1

AVEON HEALTH

Diabetes Experts

       If you are a Diabetic you are undoubtedly already aware of the fact that one of the more vulnerable areas you need to be concerned about is, in fact, your feet.  We are advised constantly to be aware of our feet, looking for such things as:

  • Blisters, Bunions, and Bleeding Corns & Calluses.
  • Color Changes in the Skin.
  • Cracks and Extreme Dryness, Especially in the Heels.
  • Fungus and Infection.
  • Ingrown Toenails.
  • Leg and Ankle Pain.
  • Numbness Anywhere in the Foot, Including the Toes.
  • Open and Slow-Healing Sores.
  • Swelling in the Foot or Ankle.

2

       As you are undoubtedly aware, our Feet are but one area of the body that can be attacked by Diabetes.  Other systems and organs in “jeopardy” include, but are not limited to:

  • Eyes
  • Heart
  • Kidneys
  • Nerves

Having a Podiatrist involved in our health care is beneficial for a multitude of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Dealing with Corns, Cracks and Calluses in a safe and healthy manner.
  • Lifestyle Choices:  They can explain and encourage such things as never walking barefoot  and which Sports you should pursue and/or avoid!
  • Mentoring you in regard to Nerve Damage and how such problems can adversely affect you, such as making you unaware of dangerous temperatures, such as submerging your feet in water too hot to be safe.
  • Suggesting proper Lotions and other foot products that will protect rather than damage your feet.

A well-informed and active Health Team is an important part of the Diabetics life, and a Podiatrist should be an integral part of that team!

If you, or someone you know, needs help in managing their Diabetes, please call AVEON HEALTH at 480-300-4663 to make an appointment with a member of our staff and allow them to escort you down the path to an improved quality of life for you and your loved ones!  One of the very special services we provide is offered by our on-staff Podiatrist.
