Family DOC 1st: Your family doc can help sugar and cholesterol and to decide who else is needed. Blood sugar needs top control (endocrinologist). More studies may be needed to show the seriosness & possibly stent obstructions (radiologist) a vascular surgeon might need to bypass arteries. A wound specialist for sure.A podiatrist for toe nails and special shoes.
