Diabetes

Diabetes is a complex metabolic disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. One of the most common and serious complications associated with diabetes is diabetic foot complications. Proper foot care is essential for individuals living with diabetes to prevent these complications that can lead to severe health issues, including amputation.

Diabetes can have a profound impact on foot health due to its effects on blood circulation and nerve function. Poorly managed blood glucose levels can damage the arteries that supply the feet, leading to reduced blood flow. Additionally, diabetes can cause peripheral neuropathy, a condition in which nerve damage impairs sensation in the feet. These factors increase the risk of developing foot ulcers, infections, and other serious complications.

Our dedicated podiatrists specialise in the care of diabetic feet. We emphasise the importance of regular foot exams, self-examinations, and proper foot hygiene for individuals with diabetes. Our team provides comprehensive diabetic foot care, including circulation assessment, neurological assessment and wound management. We work collaboratively with patients to develop individualised foot care plans to reduce the risk of complications and ensure optimal foot health.

If you have diabetes, it's crucial to prioritise your foot health. Don't hesitate to reach out to our podiatry team for guidance and care. With proper management, education, and regular monitoring, we can help you maintain healthy, pain-free feet and reduce the risk of diabetes-related foot complications. Your foot health is our priority, and we are here to support you in your journey toward a healthier and more active life, despite diabetes. It is recommended that you have a diabetes foot assessment at least every 12 months.
