Any injury that impacts the feet is bound to have widespread impact. “The muscles of the foot may not function properly, because of nerve damage that impacts alignment of the feet, create too much pressure in one area of the foot leading to foot ulcers,” says Dr Gupta, consultant orthopedic surgeon, Fortis Hospital, Anandapur, Kolkata.
How to avoid diabetes
- Have a regular, protein-rich, wholesome breakfast.
- Eat small meals at frequent intervals, to avoid hunger pangs and consequent unhealthy snacking.
- Have fruit and nuts handy for healthy snacking.
- Drink water all through the day.
- When eating out, choose healthier foods: whole wheat breads with veggies, instead of food made of white flour and fat; steamed, not fried; coconut water, butter milk, jaljeera or nimbu pani, instead of sweetened aerated drinks
- Incorporate regular physicalactivities into daily routine: take stairs instead of lifts; park car a block away and walk the remaining distance; office or table-chair exercises are also a great way to stay active; walk around office during breaks and lunch hour.
