Understanding Podiatry Care at Ahalia Diabetes

Kerala’s first comprehensive Diabetes Hospital  

We frequently take for granted our feet and ankles as we go about our daily lives. We don’t really appreciate the value of pain or discomfort to our general well-being unless we are in them. Podiatrists are highly skilled medical professionals that specialize in treating conditions of the foot and ankle. This blog article will discuss the significance of podiatrists, particularly in the context of managing and preventing diabetes.

The primary responsibility of podiatrists is to keep their patients moving. A person’s ability to walk, run, and participate in physical exercise can be greatly impacted by foot and ankle issues. Lack of exercise can cause weight gain, which in turn can contribute to a variety of other health issues, such as heart disease and stroke. This can have a cascade effect on a person’s overall health. Podiatrists play a crucial role in keeping patients active and healthy by assisting them in managing foot and ankle issues.

Of course, not every foot and ankle issue is the same. Some are more severe than others and call for surgical intervention or other advanced medical care. Having received considerable training in the most up-to-date surgical methods and technologies, podiatrists are especially qualified to manage these circumstances. Podiatrists have the knowledge and skills to assist their patients get back on their feet, sometimes quite literally, whether it’s fixing a fracture or carrying out a sophisticated reconstruction.

Treatment of diabetic foot ulcers is a significant service offered by Ahalia Diabetes Hospital’s podiatry division. Diabetes frequently leads to foot ulcers, which can be challenging to cure. Foot ulcers are treated by the hospital’s podiatrists using a multidisciplinary strategy that includes debridement, unloading, and wound care. To guarantee that patients receive the finest care possible, they collaborate closely with the hospital’s wound care staff.
