Assessment and Treatments

Diabetes care

People diagnosed with diabetes can develop foot complications including loss of sensation in the feet. This can result in damage that you may be unaware of, eg. standing on a sharp object or a toenail digging in.

Our recommendation

People with diabetes should have annual foot assessments to monitor any loss of sensation and check the circulation. Numb feet should be always protected and checked regularly for damage.

Diabetes can also affect the blood supply to the feet, causing a delay in the healing of any wound and increasing the risk of infection. The circulation to the feet is also checked during a diabetic foot assessment.

Small problems can become big problems in diabetes, so it is important to see your podiatrist to keep trouble at bay. Hard skin and corns should be treated promptly to avoid high pressure areas that can ulcerate.
