Heel pain that lasts more than 8 weeks may be caused by a ligament tear in the heel, whose initial symptoms are almost identical to plantar fasciitis. However, the treatments for the two conditions are very different. http://buff.ly/1FzXDcP

Hold off on that sugary pick-me-up at lunchtime. New research shows that those who drink unsweetened or lightly sweetened coffee, tea or water daily instead of sugar-sweetened drinks like sodas and milkshakes, are much less likely to develop diabetes. It may be common sense, but now a definitive link has been shown. http://buff.ly/1PmvhEi

Very entertaining and informative article from Huffington Post on how type 1 and type 2 diabetes are still lumped together in many people's minds. When in fact they are two vastly different diseases. http://buff.ly/1AaPFB6

This isn't about foot and ankle health, but we think it's important. This is an incredible video of how the sun - specifically the UV rays - see your skin and how they age your skin. It's quite "illuminating" and makes an excellent argument for why you should use sunscreen. http://buff.ly/1bf7Dfg

Do you have flat feet? For some, it's completely normal and causes no pain. But for others, their flat feet can cause pain anywhere from the midfoot to the back. The good news is, surgery isn't usually required to relieve the symptoms. http://buff.ly/1Pv3CD3

If you want your feet to look good on the beach this summer, now is the time you should be considering treatment for your bunions. Did you know that not all bunion treatments involve surgery? http://buff.ly/1I6DsCh
