Get Rid of Diabetic Dry, Cracked, and Itching Feet
What Causes Diabetic Feet To Become So Dry, Cracked, and Callused?
Blood Sugars Giving You Dry Feet And Calluses
There are two types of Diabetes. Type and Type 2. I'm type 2. During my time as a Diabetic I've learned that both can bring about problems to nerves and blood vessels.
High Blood Sugars in your body are one of the leading causes to dry skin. Food filled with Carbs raise your blood Sugar. Normally it's stay away from Candy and sweets but there's more to it than that. Lot's of foods we eat have a high Sugar Content before we even part our lips to enjoy our mouth watering snacks and dinners. Not to mention the added salt. Tip:1) Don't add salt or sugar to your food. Check your label for Sodium and Sugars that are already there. Getting Familiar with this method can affectively cause weight loss. Tip: 2) Start to familiarize yourself with a new array of seasonings. Diffrent Seasonings will open up a new genre of flavors for your pallet. Tip: 3) Lot's of seasoning's already have salt in them, therefore your addition of salt can cause you meal to become high in Sodium content. Tip: 4) If you like cereal and you must have a sweet taste. Get a box of cereal unfrosted and a box you like that's sweet. Pour a bowl of unsweet cereal and top it off with a sweet cereal and mix. (hint: there should only be a handful of sweet in your bowl) Tip: 4) Don't be afraid to experiment when cooking. This will teach you healthy ways to feed your pallet.
Be aware that Caffeine can affect your blood sugars as well.
Now I'm not one who constantly count carbs when I eat but I do maintain a proper diet. Learning what to eat as opposed to how you normally eat can be overwhelming at first but following the steps above helps.
High glucose (blood sugar) can affect the cell walls which can decrease the flow of blood. Low blood flow (poor circulation) will cause your skin to become dry and itchy. Our blood travels through vessels like well manufactured delivery service. Getting nutrients where they need to be. But when we have damaged nerves, High Glucose, and other problems that interfere with this system, Nutrients can't get to the feet.
Now let's Talk Calluses. They need to be trimmed in order to keep them from turning into open sores. Being Diabetic can make this process dangerous. Going to a foot spa where they would take a blade to your feet may not be the best idea.
Not only are you unsure how clean the objects are but are the foot spas you attend following proper health code. If that's not enough to worry you, a cut too deep may not heal properly and could become infected. These dangers are true for anyone but a never healing wound is more applicable for any Diabetic.
While having Diabetes, I noticed my feet would constantly itch from dryness and I had calluses on my big toe and under my feet. No matter how often I would put lotion on my feet, Nothing worked. The products gave me relief only lasted a few hours. I always keep my feet clean would even use a Pumice tool in the shower. Still Nothing. To add to my distain I noticed skin would be every where my feet would be. I noticed dry skin flakes on my sheets and as if my feet were deteriorating by the second.
Now to the good Part. I decided to use a product that I had not bought for this Particular purpose and there it was! The Holy Grail. It worked so well that I decided to not use any product on my feet for four days after this home treatment. and voila! Still no dry skin, No Itching, no flaking and the calluses were disappearing OMG to my amazement.
Step By Step
- In the Shower use a foot Pumice to flatten your calluses and smooth them out.
- Use the foot scrub first. Make sure to have two towels. one for the floor and the other for your feet. Don't forget to get around the toenail cuticle and under your toe nails. Use a file and don't dig deep. Your skin will be soft so don't press hard. If you have stubborn skin scrub it away with a towel.
- After wiping all the debris from your feet, use the cracked heel treatment on your whole foot.
- Feel free to wear socks over night. (optional)
- Enjoy your newly rejuvenated feet!
