What Lotion Is Good To Use On Feet For A Diabetic Person?


Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com,
researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I’m going to answer the question, what
foot lotion should I use. But before we get into that, make sure you
download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping
guide (foods to eat and avoid) by clicking the link below. For a person with diabetes, taking care of
your feet is of utmost importance. It is vital to make foot care a part of your
daily routine. Bresta Miranda-Palma, MD, a professor with
the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami Medical School says, “About 85%
of amputations can be prevented if the patient gets a wound treated in time.” You should check your feet daily and check
for new cuts and scrapes. We have more on this in our video, “Foot
Care and Diabetes” Part of foot care is making sure your feet
are hydrated. Rough, dry skin can crack and cause major
problems. A good moisturizing lotion can be as important
as your prescription medication in keeping your diabetes in check. A quick note, when putting lotion on your
feet, it is vitally important that you do NOT put lotion between your toes. This can cause can moisture that can lead
to fungus growth. So what lotion should you use? I have tried many lotions or foot creams and
I will give you what I feel are the best. But lotions and creams are like just about
anything else, they work for some better than others. You need to choose the lotion that is best
for you. I am just giving you my suggestions. Eucerin – Most any Eucerin product is good
for the feet. They do make a “Foot Repair Cream” that
is very good. Gold Bond – Now before you dismiss Gold
Bond because of the scent of their powder, they have a new fresh scent for their lotions. Gold Bond makes a great product called Gold
Bond Ultimate Foot. It contains 7 moisturizers and does a great
job keeping your feet hydrated. O’Keeffe’s – O’Keeffe’s makes an
excellent product called “For Healthy Feet.” It uses a high concentration of glycerin to
maintain healthy moisture. AmLactin—Of all I have tried, this is the
best for me. It has no odor, it doesn’t leave my feet
greasy and really keeps my feet soft. I will put a link in the description box below
for all of the foot products I have mentioned. Again, get what is best for you. I hope this answered your question what foot
lotion should I use. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management
book by clicking the link in the description box below. Let me know if you have any other diabetes
related questions. Thank you
I am Ty Mason
