Welcome to the Diabetic Foot Care Center at Lakeland Family Podiatry

This section is new and ongoing. For now we will start with some diabetic news.

*One of the type 2 Diabetes risk factors is bone fractures. Recent research by scientists at UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco and UC Davis suggest it is because the bones are less flexible. Their research  in animals indicated the diabetic rats studied had changes to the network of collagen fibers reducing the elastic and tensile strength in the bones.

Diabetes makes bones less bendable, more prone to fracture.
