My name is Haywan Chiu. I am a podiatrist with a special interest in the diabetic foot. My work has a huge impact on the quality of life for people who suffer from diabetes. The diabetic foot is a very complicated topic, because it involves SO many factors other than just the foot. I want my patients to understand as much as possible what is happening to their feet and their bodies, but there is never enough time to deliver all of this information. Hence, I decided to start this blog as a means to share more information than I ever could in a short 15-30 minute clinic appointment.
