Diabetic Foot Care
Foot care is partricularly important if you have diabetes. Foot problems are a common complication of this condition. Feeling can be lost due to nerve damage, the blood supply can be impaired leading to slower healing. A person whose nerves are damaged by diabetes may not realise they have minor cuts and blisters, which can lead to ulcers.
Foot problems can be avoided if the patient takes care of their feet, acts quickly on observing a problem and has regular checks with the Podiatrist.
