Diabetes & the Pedicure – A Deadly Combination?
Diabetes is wreaking havoc on our population. Certainly as our population ages we as esthetic professionals are faced with a greater number of persons with this dis- order. We can deliver effective pedicure care, however we must know what to watch for and design foot care around the problem. Is it not ironic that the feet being so important to us are the first to suffer if diabetes is left untreated? Doug Coburn will help you understand the disease but also help you identify the diabetic client. Knowing what to do and how to approach a diabetic could truly save a foot, limb or life.
