Dr. Leo Krawetz of Healthy Feet Podiatry in Tampa, Wesley Chapel and Brooksville, Florida trims toenails by cutting around the toe meat under the toenail. Diabetic foot care is cutting toenails on a regular schedule to prevent infected ingrown toenails or severe fungus under the toenails and fungal toenails. How to cut thick discolored deformed nails is a question asked by people with diabetes who have diabetic neuropathy and lose the sensation in the feet due to diabetes. A diabetic foot should have routine diabetic foot care to cut the toenails and trim the corns and calluses on the feet every 2 months. Toenails can become very thick and hard and brittle and flaky and are difficult to cut. Skin under the toenail is sometimes called toe meat and should not be cut or bleeding under the toenail and a severe foot infection or infected toe could cause amputation of a diabetic foot. Dr. Leo will teach diabetic footcare and preventative diabetic foot checks and diabetic foot examinations while he shows you a foot with foot complications from diabetes and diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
