Dr. Sowell will take every opportunity to speak to or educate diabetics concerning their foot and medical care. Too many people with diabetes suffer from wounds, infections and amputations that could be prevented with early diagnosis and treatment. Diabetic foot complications put a large burden on our medical system and on the families affected by the disease. If you know a person who has diabetes, please help them get involved in their own medical care and educate themselves on proper nutrition, blood sugar control, foot exams, eye exams, etc. Sowell Podiatry provides education in the office, on our website (www.etfaonline.com), on our blog (www.nacogdochesfootdoctor.com), through speaking engagements and community events.
