"I can't begin to tell you the difference in my feet. My calluses are starting to disappear and the cracks in my feet are healing," Bonnie D. Olympia, Washington

Diabetics have unique skincare needs. They have very vulnerable skin that needs proper diabetic care. Dry skin, particularly on the feet, becomes itchy, which causes scratching and soreness that can lead to infection through cracks in the skin. In serious cases, that infection can result in foot amputation.
Foot problems in diabetics are particularly troublesome. Around 25% of diabetics will develop a foot ulcer in their lifetime*. More than half of those ulcers will become infected requiring hospitalization, and 20% of those will require amputation**. 80% of the non-traumatic amputations performed yearly in the United States are attributed to diabetes***. That amounts to a diabetic losing a leg from a medical complication caused by diabetes every 30 seconds****.
Thankfully, the chances of diabetics developing foot infections can be reduced by Dr. Greenfield's Footcream, formulated by clinical experts to provide the necessary moisturizers, emollients and vitamins for prevention of infection. One application of the cream twice a day helps keep feet free of the calluses and cracks that can lead to infection.
Says Dr. Greenfield's Diabetic Products President Dr. Stan Greenfield, "Diabetics use Diabetic Footcream like any other regular moisturizer. It isn't greasy, it won't clog your pores, and it comes packed with vitamins and antioxidants to keep nerves and skin healthy. It even has a moisture barrier to make it tough to wash off."
Dr. Greenfield's Diabetic Footcream is patented and contains humectants and emollients such as Tea Tree Oil that moisturize, soften and soothe the skin. There's no petroleum to clog the pores, and exfoliating agents reduce calluses. The diabetic cream also provides vitamins A, D, E and provitamin B5 for diabetics.
Dr. Greenfield, a PhD pharmaceutical chemist, has a personal reason to pour his time and passion into his diabetic skincare business.
He says, "As a child, I grew up in a household with diabetic family members. Now, as an adult, I've witnessed my own son develop type 1 diabetes during his adolescence. It's an insidious disease and I've made it my goal to develop safe, effective and affordable skincare products for diabetics through my small, family-owned business."
Dr. Greenfield's research and technical expertise have also had a quite surprising bonus. "My products have developed a growing list of satisfied customers," he says. "But many of them aren't even diabetic. Many non-diabetics have discovered that my products are simply good for the skin. They're packed with vitamins, moisturisers, and emollients that leave skin soft, glowing, and enriched."
Dr. Greenfield's Diabetic Products has also developed and manufactured Diabetic Hand and Body Cream that works in the same effective way as the Footcream, but without the Tea Tree Oil.
The product is already a firm favorite with diabetic customers, who have achieved remarkable results with the creams. Here are just a couple of the many testimonials received to date:

'I became a diabetic in 2003/2002. I was first given medication by my doctor to combat the dryness of skin on my feet and hands. That medication (prescription) did not work. I had been in this medical facility here close to my home: spoke to the druggist, he recommended your product and the rest is history. You have some wonderful products that work well for diabetics. I intend to keep using your hand and foot cream as long as I need some (which I am sure from now on). Thank you so very much for caring.'
