Proper foot care is a critical component of diabetes self-management. In this episode we talk with podiatrist Dr. Jane Andersen about the importance of establishing a good relationship with your local podiatrist and what the diabetes care and education specialist can do to support the foot health of people with diabetes. We discuss complications like neuropathy, warning signs diabetes specialists should look for in their patients and when they should refer to a podiatrist.
