3. I treat meself to a pedicure every few months - not frequently enough really.

I go to a nail salon in a very large mall, where I figure the poor pedicurist has seen everything, so that actually mine are not the worst they've seen.
And, yes, I do see men as well as women in there, too.
For some nails, I can clip between times at homes, but, obviously, not the worst.
They also give a leg massage, sometimes at an extra price, while there, and work on callouses.

The thing I've heard about podiatrists, is that Medicare will pay for treatments if you say your toes hurt.
That may be cut back, with closer watching of Medicare payments, but bears looking into.
I've never been to a podiatrist, though my doc has recommended because of pre-diabetes.
I believe, and someone else can verify if true, that podiatrist treatments are considered part of diabetic care.
