Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes (diabetes mellitis) is a condition involving the pancreas. The pancreas is the organ that produces the hormone insulin, which is responsible for converting sugar, or glucose into energy for our body.

As a result, sugars can be left to circulate through the blood stream, and can only be removed through…

Foot Pain? It Could Be Plantar Fasciitis

This is a band of tissue that runs along the base of the foot from the heel to the ball of the foot. It plays a role in maintaining the foot’s arch. It also helps to create energy efficiency when walking and running. With overuse, or…

With a change of season comes a change in the types of problems that podiatrists see on a regular basis. Following are a few of the common ones, with some easy pointers to…

Winter Foot Care

POOR FOOTWEAR The winter months in Shanghai may encourage us to opt for warmth over support in order to get through the cold. Those sheep-skin lined boots will keep the toes warm, but may not be the best solution for walking long distances on the hard, unforgiving streets of Shanghai. In addition, the landmark holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas, calendar New Year, and Chinese New Year falling in quick succession means…
