November is Diabetes Awareness Month! This month we are reminded of the vital role Podiatric Physicians and Surgeons play in the management team of a diabetic patient. According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 30 million Americans have diabetes. Studies have shown a decrease in lower limb amputations of up to 80% for those with diabetes that are treated by a Podiatric Physician. These patients are vulnerable to many troublesome conditions including Peripheral Arterial Disease, Diabetic Neuropathy, or Diabetic Wounds/Ulcers. Talar Medical proudly supports Foot & Ankle Specialists by providing discounts with an array of different vendors aimed at providing the best products to help you care for your diabetic patients.
