Diabetes Management: Footcare & Insulin Management

Diabetes Management involves two critical sections that are Insulin Management and Foot Care for Diabetes patients. Insulin therapy is usually a significant part of diabetes treatment, and unstable insulin can raise your chance of foot ulcers, amputations, and other severe difficulties. In addition, one must understand the critical role of foot care and insulin therapy in maintaining your blood sugar level and limiting diabetes complications.

What Are The Different Types of Diabetes?

There are various types of diabetes, it includes:

Type 1 Diabetes: This is an auto-immune condition where the immune system begins attacking and damaging the cells in your pancreas. And, this is where insulin is created. Unfortunately, there are no known reasons for this attack. It is also estimated that around 10% of the population is suffering from Type 1 Diabetes. 

Type 2 Diabetes: This condition occurs when an individual's body becomes resistant to insulin, and your blood sugar level rises. 

Pre-diabetes: It is a situation when the sugar level in your blood is higher but not high enough to be described as Type 2 Diabetes. 

Gestational Diabetes: This condition is the consequence of high blood sugar during pregnancy. It is produced by insulin-blocking hormones formed by the placenta.

Why Do We Need Insulin Management Therapy?

Insulin Therapy is needed to restore the insulin your body doesn't create if you have Type 1 diabetes. But sometimes, Type 2 diabetic or gestational diabetic patients require insulin therapy too. It usually happens when other treatments fail to manage the blood glucose levels within the aspired limit. In addition, Insulin Therapy can prevent diabetes complications by keeping your blood sugar level within the range.

How To Prevent Major Feet Complications?

You can prevent critical health problems like ulcers and amputation if you understand the risk factors and adequately care for your feet. 

Our doctors at We Care Health Medical Centre can carry out an easy and pain-free examination on your feet to check whether you have a low or high risk of producing more severe problems.

Low Risk
Low-risk feet have normal sensation and healthy blood flow. However, it is essential to recognise that low-risk feet can turn into high-risk feet without any symptoms. This is why routine check-ups are necessary.

High Risk
People who earlier had a foot ulcer or amputation have a massive risk of complications. If your feet have calluses or deformities such as claw toes, you may develop problems such as a poor response or reduced blood flow. If you think that your feet are at high risk, you have to get them checked by a doctor quarterly. Diabetic Patients who have deformed feet and nerve damage are the more likely to develop:

  • Ulcers from severe pressure over some parts of the feet
  • Prone to corns and calluses because of much pressure on one area and can be dodged with some changes.

If your feet are at risk, you have to visit a podiatrist more frequently for a check-up. If you have any concerns with your Insulin Management, such as problems in preventing low or high blood sugar levels, please consult a doctor immediately.
