It’s possible for people with diabetes to perform routine toenail care. But visual difficulty, nerve problems, or circulatory changes in the legs or feet can make this unsafe. Below are a few tips for proper toenail care
- Trim the toenails after washing feet, when nails are soft.
- Cut straight across rather than in a curved fashion to help prevent ingrown toenails.
- Don’t cut into the corners. Use an emery board to smooth the edges.
- Kidneys, which are the organs that filter waste out of the blood to produce urine
