    "As a healthcare professional who lectures on foot health, I found this book to be concise and to the point. The potential effects from lack of proper foot care are not soft peddled. The steps to take for preventive foot care are written and organized in an easy-to-digest manner.With managed care taking it's toll on the time allotted for doctor visits, our patients need to become better informed. "101 Footcare Tips" will help diabetics and their families know when to seek urgent treatment for what may seem to be a minor foot problem, hopefully, before infection and possible amputation become a real threat."

    I keep my feet clean and dry, my toenails trimmed and the calluses filed off. I also use a lotion on my feet to keep them from getting so dry so that they don't crack or chap. I check them regularly to make sure there's no cuts or open sores. If there are, I immediately go to my Podiatrist. I wear Birkenstocks more than I wear any other brand of shoes and I try really hard not to go barefoot although that's the really tough one for me.

    Go barefoot as much as you can! It's actually good for you as long as you're not in some dingy public place. But at home or on green grass at a nice park, it's healthy.

    I've never been diagnosed with diabetes, but I seem to have similar foot ailments that I have to treat daily just to maintain. A few fungal toenails and dry, peeling soles require daily attention. I'm trying to cure things not only externally, but internally as well. I'm going to research this 101 Foot Care Tips further.
