    I can agree with the findings of the study above, one of my easiest patients is a 99 (very nearly 100) year old woman, who comes to me for her nails cutting because she cannot see quite clearly enough. That's it! no corns or callus, or anything! She is bordering on underweight and does not suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. (Big help!)

    Yes, I have the same problem here in the State of Maine. Lots of elderly, no family to help them and the system denies coverage because they have no qualifying factors of diabetes or something similar.
    I guess we need more studies / research to help prove to the beaurocrats that people like your patient may be at more risk of injurying themselves or making a simple problem into a more expensive one.
