Diabetic circulation: Yes there are. A diabetic can be referred to a vascular surgeon for an evaluation. There are several tests that we use to determine the type and level of blockages in the lower extremity. Once this testing is completed, the vascular surgeon can discuss the timing and need for the procedure with the patient.

Movement: Walk more. Make sure you have shoes and socks that fit well so you don't get any wounds. Even just wiggling your feet and legs frequently will help some. Go to www.Yourdiabetesinfo.Org for lots more info on diabetes.
