I am diabetic. How often should I be seen by a podiatrist?

All diabetic patients should have a podiatrist. On your initial exam, your podiatrist will tell you if you are at low or high risk for complications in your feet. Generally speaking, a diabetic patient that has good ciruculation and no neurologic deficit (numbness/burning/tingling) can be seen on an annual basis. However, if one is at higher risk with poor circulation and/or numbness in the feet, then exams/treatments should be done every 2-3 months.
