Diabetic Conditions

Diabetes is Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease. It is estimated 280 Australians develop diabetes every day.

 

Your feet are at risk because diabetes damages your nerves and blood supply to your feet. You are more likely to develop complication if you have had diabetes for a long time, if you smoke or if you are inactive.

 

A diabetic foot evaluation involves checking:

  • Circulation
  • Nerves
  • Toenails
  • Corns
  • Calluses
  • Pressure areas

 

Regular checks by your podiatrist can reduce your risk by ensuring nails are cut correctly, calluses removed and give you advice on diabetic foot care.
