One of the most common foot complications in diabetics is nail disease. Nail disease can occur when diabetes causes changes in the blood vessels and nerves in the feet, which can lead to problems with circulation.

This can cause the nails to become thick, yellow, and brittle. It can also cause the nails to separate from the nail bed.

Certified master pedicures can help prevent nail disease by keeping the nails trimmed and filed. This helps to avoid any pressure on the nail bed, which can lead to further damage.


They Improve Blood Circulation

Poor circulation is another common complication of diabetes. When the blood vessels are damaged, it can cause the blood to flow more slowly and erratically. This can cause a number of problems, including numbness, tingling, and pain in the feet.

Diabetic Pedicures can help improve circulation by stimulating the blood vessels. The massage that is done during a pedicure can help to increase blood flow and reduce any pain or discomfort.


They Help to avoid Foot Complications

There are a number of other foot complications that can occur in diabetics, including ulcers, infections, and Charcot foot.

Regular diabetic pedicures can help to avoid these complications by keeping the feet clean and free of any debris. This helps to prevent any irritation or injury that could lead to further problems.
