This book covers the the causes of foot problems, methods of dealing with these problems, and ways to prevent them. Dr. Neil Scheffler has written this book with the person with diabetes in mind. In clear, concise language intended for people who are not health care professionals, Dr. Scheffler's writing makes learning about foot care quick, easy, and painless. Intimidating medical jargon is broken down into plain language for the layperson, and he provides a discussion of what each and every medical professional involved in the treatment of feet specializes in.
