My Family Doctor sent my Husband and Myself to the Podiatrist today, for a foot eval., and nail clipping for she no longer wants us to no longer cutting our own nails because of our diabetes.
It turned out very well, the Dr. was very nice, but kinda scared me when he told me that smokers has a better rate of amputation than non-smokers. So now I'm more than ever more determined than ever to quit smoking.
I never thought I would have to ever have to have someone else care for my feet.

From head to toe, it is all connected. It is funny though that this would be brought up by your podiatrist. Good for him and good for you. There are several discussions going on about people who what to stop smoking. Join in on one of those to see if there is any helpful information in there for you.
