Diabetic Foot Care

It is extremely important that diabetic patients take extra care of their feet as they are at increased risk of damage to their nerves, leading to reduced sensation in their lower limb and damage to their circulation (vascular disease).

To help prevent problems, where possible, the feet should be checked daily for signs of swelling, inflammation, cuts, bruising or anything out of the ordinary.

People with diabetes should never walk barefoot and should take care with their footwear to ensure it fits properly, has a wide toe box and does not have any rough seams or linings that could cause damage to the foot.

Book a visit with Body & Sole for a neurovascular assessment and to help maintain healthy feet.
