Foot care is often one of the most overlooked side effects of Diabetes. People with diabetes are prone to having various foot related issues and therefore taking care of your feet is very important to avoid further complications.

Footcare for Diabetics

Many people with Diabetes can end up having problems with their feet and legs. Therefore good treatment is of vital importance to ensure you keep your mobility and live pain-free.

What are the issues associated with Diabetic Foot?

The elevated glucose levels associated with diabetes can impact your circulatory and nervous systems, manifesting in the feet as something called peripheral neuropathy. This is damage to your nerves which desensitises your feet to pain, hot and cold, therefore you won’t notice a cut. Healing is also affected due to poor circulation.

What are the complications of diabetic foot?

If a cut is left unnoticed, it may lead to:

  • Ulcers
  • Infections
  • Foot amputation, if severe

What does Podiatry for Diabetic Feet involve?

Our qualified staff will perform the following assessments:

  • Neurological assessment
  • Skin assessment
  • Vascular assessment

We will also treat cuts or other foot issues once we have checked you.

What are the essential aftercare tips for diabetic individuals?

Maintaining good foot hygiene to avoid potential infections is really important. Wearing appropriate shoes is a big help in keeping your feet in good condition, and never attempt to treat own podiatry issues such as hard skin accumulation yourself.
