MD Podiatrist Discusses Warning Signs of Diabetes

Dan Michaels, DPM says, “If you experience a change in sensation in how your feet feel, slower healing of cuts or recurrent skin infections, this could be an early warning sign for diabetes. Type 2 diabetes in particular can be present for years before signs are detected in the feet and can do a lot of damage in that time.”
“Also, look out for increases in thirst, the need to urinate, tiredness and hunger, and a dry mouth, which are also warning signs. “Routine diabetic foot screening halved in 2021.”
