Dr. Yeargain provides foot care and regular check-ups for patients living with diabetes. He offers expertise, advanced treatments, and support, working closely with you to manage whatever conditions may arise.
Prevention is the key for diabetic patients. Daily foot inspections, proper shoes, control of blood sugars, regular visits to your health care provider, exercise, and diet, are all part of the process of prevention. Diabetics should look for changes in the skin, including cracks, red streaks, sores, drainage, or swelling. If any changes occur in the look or feel of the feet, it’s important to call our office to get it checked out.
If I’m diabetic, how often should I come in for a check-up?
Medicare covers patient visits that occur every 3 months. That schedule allows Dr. Yeargain to keep an eye on any developing conditions, and treat problems early, before they become more complex.
