Bad Circulation

I have almost zero sensation in my feet, and as a result, I had part of three toes amputated last winter. With the cold season around the corner again, how do I take precautions against this?

Hi Ray,

In September of 2012 I initiated a discussion on "CIDP and foot care." If you search for the phrase "CIDP and footcare" using the search engine at the top of this page, you should be able to access the discussion on this topic.

Good luck,

Jon

I recommend the following link for information about foot care. Although it was prepared for patients with diabetes, much of it applies to CIDP.
