While it may seem a rather insignificant measure, keeping your toenails at an ideal length could be very important, especially to a person diagnosed with diabetes.Nurse Tracy Emanuel makes a presentation on Thursday.This notion was on Thursday amplified by Nurse Tracy Emanuel when she delivered an informative presentation on ‘Foot Care’ to students in Region Three.The event was a mini fair organised by the Region Three Health and Wellness Club in observance of World Health Day.According to Nurse Emanuel,nfl jerseys authentic cheap, who has been practising nursing for the past 10 years, with the past four seeing her integrally involved in Foot Care at the West Demerara Regional Hospital, it is important for diabetics to ensure that their toenails are not too short or too long.“It should be just above the tip of the toe…When you go to cut your toenails trim them straight across and avoid going into the corners to prevent injuries,” she warned the students and all those who gave an ear.Cutting toe nails too close to the corners could in fact result in ingrown toenails, she said. “When a person cuts his or her toenails too low and into the corners, when it starts to re-grow it can grow downwards instead of outwards and it can become infected. This can predispose diabetic persons to ulcers (sores),” according Nurse Emanuel.As part of foot care efforts she noted that persons should avoid using sharp objects to clean the sides of their toenails since this too could potentially cause injuries.Nurse Emanuel explained that the most important thing when a person has diabetes is to prevent injuries. As such she noted that it is also imperative to pay close attention to the areas surrounding the toes too.This is in light of the fact, she added,Wholesale NBA Jerseys, that “foot problems are the leading issues that diabetics experience.”And foot problems could occur, according to Nurse Emanuel, when persons attempt to keep their feet clean by soaking them in warm water.

When the skin is too dry you can experience cracking and that too can cause ulcers to develop.“That is something we are trying to prevent,” related Nurse Emanuel.She therefore urged that persons opt to use water that is at room temperature to clean their feet and seek to take care in the cleaning process.“Do not rub, just gently wipe as the friction caused by rubbing could cause tearing and bruising and even develop into something worse,” the Nurse added.She also advised that after the cleaning of feet, persons should seek to apply mild scented cream or lotion to ensure that their feet remain moist.Among the most important factors in foot care too,NFL Jerseys Outlet, Nurse Emanuel said that footwear must always be appropriately comfortable. Footwear, according to her, should be enclosed and not be too tight or slack fitting.In purchasing appropriate footwear, she noted that materials should also be taken into consideration and it should not have too hard or too soft soles. Added to this, she related that pointed footwear should always be a “no, no” for persons with diabetes.When purchasing a pair of shoes, diabetic persons should seek to do so during the afternoon hours as according to her, “a diabetic’s feet tend to get puffy later in the day and that is the appropriate time to buy a pair of shoes at which time the shoes purchased will be able to accommodate the puffiness.”World Health Day is celebrated on April 7, annually.
