Why is Tuesday so important? Unlike Monday, when left over things from the weekend get done, Tuesday is often the beginning of the week for new things and new problems to be addressed. Did you know that Tuesday is a good day to look at your feet if you are a diabetic?
Now, Lisa, it has been a long time since I could get my feet up where I can see them. How do I do that?
True. Not all of us are still able to get our feet up to our face like when we were children. So what can be done is put a mirror on the floor and then look at the bottom of your foot this way. Look between your toes, bottoms of your feet, and make sure there is nothing between your toes and any open areas on your soles. You are looking for anything unusual, such as shoes rubbing, blisters not resolving, and anything that looks like a sore starting. Skin should have circulation. This means touch it to see if changes colors. If not, then there is an issue with the circulation.
But why should diabetics check their feet on Tuesday? By checking your feet on Tuesday, this gives you Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to make an appointment with your provider if you find something. A provider then can confirm if any treatment is needed and early prevention can save losing any part of the foot. This can save thousands in health care cost and keep the wallet fat.
Diabetics check your feet this coming Tuesday and make it a habit.
