Foot Care & Diabetes
Foot care for those with diabetes, should be an ongoing routine, to keep the feet and lower legs healthy. To recognise any potential risk factors and understanding the importance of the prevention of callus and corns, especially when neuropathy is present.
Offloading any lesions or calluses with special paddings, insoles, gels or bespoke made devices is paramount to aid in the prevention of ulcers and infection.... prevention is always better than cure!
This is all included in your foot care appointment, together with regular neurovascular assessments to check on blood circulation - pulses by ultrasound and touch sensation test.
