Dr. OZ show talks about Diabetic Foot Care: Cotton Ball Test

Diabetes Cotton Ball Test by Dr. Archer on the Dr. OZ show:

Recently, I was watching the Dr.OZ Show and Dr. Archer was on explaining a simple test for people at risk of Diabetes that they could do at home.

 

  1. First, Clean your feet with a mild soap, and water. Dry them completely.
  2. Wait about 5 minutes. Now take a cotton ball, and rub it on the top of your hand to see what the cotton ball feels like.
  3. Now do the same thing on the bottom of your foot. The feeling should be very similar, but if you can not feel it, it could be a sign of Diabetes.

Please alert your physician, and have your blood tested soon if you can not feel the cotton ball on your feet.
