A provider of quality foot care, Dr. Andrew Carver treats individuals challenged by diabetes at the Washington, DC Shock Wave Center and the Washington, DC Laser Nail Center. Diabetes, a condition that inhibits the ability to properly process glucose, can cause damage to the feet. When glucose builds up in the blood, it negatively impacts a wide range of tissues, including the heart, kidneys, and blood vessels. Further, the condition results in poor circulation and nerve damage in the feet, meaning patients may not feel when they injure their feet and their immune systems may have difficulty fighting off infection.
