Opinion

... in response to Ingrown Toenails
  1. Matthew Garoufalis Matthew Garoufalis United States says:

    It is incomprehensible that on a Diabetes web site that is an article about taking care of your own ingrown toenails. I cannot tell you how many thousands, or even tens of thousands, of diabetics lose part or all of their lower limb because they tried to treat their ingrown toenail themselves without first seeing a podiatrist. This is the worse advice in the world!  Shame on the editors of this site.
