I had my first pedicure three months ago, during a blizzard....I have to admit, my feet felt and looked great. It was the best pampering I had gotten in years, Okay, so now it's summer (or close) and I want to do it again, but my diabetic pedicurist is booked solid and I want to get my feet ready for summer. Does anyone know where a good source of information on doing your own pedis is? Do you do your own or let a professional do them? I'm not taking about diabetic foot care from a podiatrist, unless your doc does polish....I'm speaking of the pampering type of foot care,.
Also, along those lines, I have always been told that diabetics shouldn't wear sandals or open shoes in the summer or anytime for that matter. The potential for cuts, scrapes, etc is too high, So do you wear sandals?Do you have special shoes you wear as a diabetic? Special diabetic socks? I live in my sneakers with orthotics, have no sandals, but some days I admit I'd love to have a pair of nice sandals, sneakers don't dress up a dress any.
Give us your thoughts, summer's coming and it's time to get ready
