Diabetic Foot Health

Your GP will agree that adequately managing your diabetes means knowing your risk of diabetic complications, and this involves more than monitoring your blood glucose. Having an annual diabetes foot health assessment enables us to assess your risk factors to best manage your foot health and minimise further intervention. Assessing blood flow, skin sensation, nail and skin integrity, gait and foot posture enable us to predict and prevent future problems. 

Such common diabetic foot complications include:

• ulcers

• infections

• numbness

• joint problems
