Diabetes Foot Care

Diabetes poses problems for sufferers and their feet on two levels:
• nerve damage, or ‘peripheral neuropathy’, which impairs sensation to the feet and/or
• reduced blood supply, also known as ‘poor circulation’

Most foot problems in people who have diabetes occur when injuries – and often infections – go unnoticed and untreated, due to a loss of feeling in the extremities through nerve damage, or when healing is delayed due to poor circulation.

A Diabetes Foot Assessment by our Podiatrists will help to detect any changes early – before they become a problem. In an assessment, our Podiatrists will educate you on any preventative measures you need to take. You will have a thorough examination where the overall health of your feet will be examined and your circulation and sensation, footwear and gait are analysed

As there are no cure for Diabetes, education and preventative care are vital in managing the effects of Diabetes.
