Thought of something really small but helpful *in my view* for all diabetics and/or their caretakers.
Since my mom is a diabetic this is one thing I always do…whenever I meet her.
Due to diabetes an individual can lose nerve sensations consequently leading to “not feeling anything” even when they get hurt. And if due attention is not paid it could lead to a severe infection…and possible risk of gangrene. Once a wound becomes gangrenous, amputation becomes an inevitable tragedy… 😦
All that you need to do is make sure that your diabetic near-dear ones regularly check their feet (soles) for any cut or wound. If they think it sounds crazy or “useless” ‘coz nothing has happened… they don’t feel anything… IGNORE and pick up those feet to examine. Do not neglect spaces between fingers. Any slight cut or wound you see make sure its tended well. Neglect can have its consequences 😐
Remember this *triplet* of mine:
Diabetics may not feel the pain from a wound.
Wounds in diabetic individuals take longer to heal.
You LOVE them… 🙂
