Tools for Your Toes ( Diabetes )

Tools for Your Toes ( Diabetes )

Diabetes can complicate even the simplest tasks, like cutting your toenails. It’s best to use caution when trimming, and always use the right tools. If you have diabetes, it is too risky to try to cut your toenails with anything except a good pair of toenail clippers.

It is not necessary to have a sterile tool, but your toenail clippers should be kept clean, dry, and sharp. When you use a tool that is dull, you have to put more pressure on the clippers, and you can injure yourself if they slip. Do not use pocketknives, kitchen knives, or sewing scissors, and try not to pick at your toenails with your fingers. Some people prefer nail clippers that look like a pair of wire cutters or pliers. They are available in large drugstores, beauty supply houses, and cutlery stores.
