Helping You Put Your Best Foot Forward!
If you're diabetic, you already know you're at risk for a number of nasty health problems. Due to poor circulation, your feet are especially vulnerable. So if your feet start to tingle and foot sores don't heal, contact James C. Loomis, DPM right away.
There's no need to let neuropathy ruin your feet. The solution is often incredibly simple. Diabetic shoes and orthotic inserts not only provide comfort and support for your feet, they reduce the risk of serious conditions like skin breakdowns.

Amputation of toes or feet
Greater sensitivity to injury
Ulcers and sores
Frequent calluses and corns
