How diabetes affects your feet

Diabetic feet refers to the negative effects caused by diabetes where people with this condition experience nerve damage or poor blood flow in their feet – it is vital you get your feet checked by a professional Chiropodist, Podiatrist or Foot Health Practitioner.

Having diabetes can lead to a loss of sensation in the feet, making it difficult to feel cuts, blisters, or other injuries. If left untreated, these injuries can become infected and lead to serious complications. It is important for people with diabetes to take good care of their feet by checking them regularly for any signs of injury, wearing comfortable shoes that fit well, voiding going barefoot and most importantly having them checked by a professional.

A podiatrist, also known as a Chiropodist, plays an important role in caring for people with diabetic feet. Podiatrists, Chiropodist and Foot Health Practitioners perform regular foot exams to check for any signs of injury or nerve damage and provide important advice on proper foot care.

” It’s really important that if you have diabetes you have your feet checked with a foot professional such as myself or my colleague. We can make a full and comprehensive assessment of your feet, record important information and make a detailed plan to help you maintain healthy feet and address any issues that occur.

 We can also help trim toenails and calluses to prevent injuries and provide treatment for any infections or foot ulcers that may develop. In addition, we can help people with diabetes choose proper footwear and provide patient-specific offloading devices or to help distribute pressure on the feet more evenly. If you have diabetes and are experiencing any foot-related issues, it is important to consult with a podiatrist or foot health practitioner as soon as possible to prevent further complications. “
