Knock your Socks Off!

November is Diabetes Awareness Month and Central Connecticut Foot Care Center is dedicated to helping educate our patients and the community about this epidemic.
According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 12% of the Hispanic population has diabetes and 66% are at risk of developing the disease when compared to other ethnic groups. When it comes to your feet, diabetes is a very dangerous disease and should not be ignored. Even if you have your diabetes under control, you should see a podiatrist for routine diabetic foot care. Diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic lower-limb amputations and with proper care, most amputations can be avoided.
Think you know a lot about diabetes? Take this quiz created by the American Podiatric Medical Association to test your knowledge!
