Don’t let diabetes get you down this summer! Dr. Brandon A. Macy is here to help you enjoy the family vacation, summer sports, and beach trips without complications to your foot and ankle health. Here are some tips to take along this summer. Share these helpful recommendations with your family and friends, too. Infection and dangerous blood sugar levels are concerning for patients with diabetes, so stay steps ahead to prevent unplanned stops to the doctor.

Store your medicine properly

If you have insulin, store your medicine according to the instructions. Patients who use insulin depend on this medication to keep their blood sugar at a healthy level. The goal is to keep insulin cool but not too cold. Check with your doctor about the best way to store insulin, especially when outdoors or traveling.

Wear comfortable, breathable socks

Now is the time when toes and feet can become even more sweaty, creating the ideal environment for foot fungus to grow. Dark, moist spaces are very welcoming. To prevent foot fungus, allow your feet (and shoes) to dry and wear breathable socks. Also, choose socks that have additional cushioning and support in problem areas.


Check-in before travel

Before you travel, check-in with your doctor. Refill any prescriptions, share updates about blood sugar levels, and express any concerns. Your doctor may have diet and exercise recommendations while you’re away. They may also recommend items to take along on the trip, including diabetic socks, orthotics, and more.

Check your blood sugar

This tip is simple: check your blood sugar — and check it often. To prepare for food changes, pack healthy snacks from home. Listen to your body, and alert your doctor to any changes.

At Clark Podiatry Center, Dr. Brandon A. Macy, a board-certified podiatrist, treats various conditions such as heel pain, diabetic wounds, bunions, nerve pain, and more.

We’re proud to share that we have been comfortably and safely accommodating patients at Clark Podiatry Center. Safety remains a top priority for our patients and staff. As we enter a new season, Dr. Brandon A. Macy and his staff are here to support you with your appointment needs. If you have missed appointments, now is the time to put them back on your calendar. For patients with diabetes, there is an additional sense of urgency.

Here are three reasons to make an appointment:

Get a second look

If you’ve been doing daily foot inspections at home, keep up the great work. We love to hear how our patients care for their feet between appointments. Regular visits allow for your podiatrist to get a second, closer look at your feet. For patients with diabetes, a cut may go unnoticed and develop into a diabetic ulcer. Swollen feet may be a sign of poor circulation.

Address any concerns

During the past year, many people have reduced their visits to specialists to limit interaction with the public. We understand, but we also want to hear any questions or concerns you may have. If you have noticed new symptoms or following up on an injury, we want to support you. Learn more about foot care for patients with diabetes.

Save your feet

Infection is dangerous for anyone, but patients with diabetes may miss these early symptoms because of a condition known as peripheral neuropathy. This condition is nerve damage, which causes patients to lose feeling in their feet or toes. Unfortunately, some patients won’t recognize they have a non-healing wound until it’s too late. The next appointment could be a battle against an infection.

We’ve missed our visits with you. Add a podiatry appointment to your calendar and see a foot and ankle specialist regularly. At Clark Podiatry Center, Dr. Brandon A. Macy, a board-certified podiatrist, treats various conditions such as heel pain, diabetic wounds, bunions, nerve pain, and more. The New Jersey Children’s Foot Health Institute is also part of Clark Podiatry Center. We provide exceptional service for patients in Union County. Contact our office at (732) 382-3470 or schedule an appointment online. Our office is at 1114 Raritan Road, Clark, NJ 07066.
