Definition Alternative Names Causes of foot pain Information Question: What causes foot pain? Answer: Many things can cause foot pain . Wearing shoes that don't fit right is one of the most common reasons people (especially women) get foot problems such as calluses and bunions . With age, feet often grow wider. Also, being overweight can increase your chances of having foot problems or injuries. Go shopping for shoes in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest due to swelling .

Most of us know that foot health is very important in diabetes care! David Mendosa has written about the seriousness of foot ulcers and Joan has written about caring for your tender tootsies . Last week, Diabetesmine addressed the issue of myth vs reality .
I spent some time talking with a friend, who is also a podiatrist; about what she thought was the right answer for caring for diabetic feet. According to APMA , American Podiatric Medical Association, diabetes and proper foot care amount to huge pay off:
More than 65,000 lower limbs are amputated annually due to complications due to diabetes.
After an amputation, the chance for another amputation within three to five years is as high as 50 percent.
Including a podiatrist in your diabetes care can reduce the risk of lower limb amputation up to 85 percent.
Care by today’s podiatrist can lower the risk of hospitalization by 24 percent for those with diabetes.
