Proper Foot Care a Must for Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease
Date:5/11/2010

May is World Foot Health Awareness Month, and the P.A.D Coalition and International Federation of Podiatrists Partner have partnered to spread messages about proper foot care. People with P.A.D. can prevent serious foot problems and amputations by taking care of their feet—every day.

Lakewood, CO (Vocus) May 11, 2010 -- People who have peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.) – or clogged arteries of the legs --are likely to develop foot problems. When the blood vessels in the feet and legs are narrowed or blocked, not enough blood flows to these parts of the body. As a result, minor problems such as cuts, sores or blisters cannot heal quickly, or heal at all.

P.A.D. is very common in adults with diabetes and these patients have an even greater risk of foot problems. In addition to poor circulation, people with P.A.D. and diabetes also may develop nerve damage from high blood glucose (sugar) levels, causing loss of feeling in their feet. One may not feel a pebble inside their sock that is causing a sore or not feel a blister develop due to friction or poorly fitting shoes. These small foot injuries can cause sores or ulcers that can turn into serious infections. If not treated promptly, these problems may lead to losing a toe, foot or leg. In fact, P.A.D. is one of the leading causes of foot or leg amputations in the United States and perhaps around the world.

May is World Foot Health Awareness Month, and the P.A.D Coalition is teaming up with the International Federation of Podiatrists to spread messages about proper foot care. People with P.A.D. can prevent serious foot problems and amputations by taking care of their feet—every day.
