A) Diabetic Foot Care

In diabetic patients, pain, temperature and touch sensation may decrease as a result of damage to the nerves in the feet. As a result, injuries are either noticed late or not, as no pain is felt. Failure to recognize injuries may cause the wound to grow larger and inflamed. Burns may also occur in people with diabetes who complain that their feet are cold and who bring their feet closer to the stove and heater to warm up. Since ingrown toenails do not cause pain, the patient becomes aware of the situation when an infection occurs and the foot is swollen.

Ingrown toenails; It may be caused by various reasons such as genetic predisposition, wrong cutting or pedicure procedures, wrong shoe selection, trauma.

It is a condition usually seen in the big toe. The nail is curled down on either side or one side and extends into the skin and is embedded in the skin. In such cases, infection can be seen around the nail.

In our Maltepe Ersoy Hospital Foot Health Clinic, the “3TO Wire Method”, which is preferred in many parts of the world, is applied by a foot care specialist. With this system, the nail, whose mattress is distorted and embedded in the flesh from the sides, is suspended from both sides with special titanium wires, pressed in the middle and lifted up. When the nail is suspended, the nail bed takes shape again and without pressure. The nail growth is monitored and the place where the wire is applied is changed in appropriate periods to control it. With nail growth, when the free nail tip is reached from the ingrown area, it is seen that the ingrown nail is completely gone and the nail bed is completely corrected. Regardless of the reason the wreck is formed, with this method, the wreck is healed effectively, healthy, painlessly and without detaching from daily life. As soon as possible, it relieves your pain caused by ingrown toenails.
