Put Care on Your Calendar
Every day: stay active, eat a healthy diet, and take medication if prescribed; check feet for redness, swelling, pain, or sores.
Four times a year: each health care visit be sure you receive a blood pressure and foot check.
Twice a year: A1C test and dental checkup.
Once a year: cholesterol test, kidney function test, podiatrist (foot doctor) and eye doctor visits, flu shot (and other vaccines as recommended by your doctor).
