Diabetes & Your Feet
With a diagnoses of diabetes, the risk of developing problems with your feet greatly increase as raised blood sugar levels can cause reduced sensation in your feet. Blood circulation issues could transpire, which may wounds taking long periods to heal, while leg cramps may occur.
Ignoring these issues could result in ulcerative changes, infection, and limb amputation. Most of these issues can be prevented through regular podiatry, where we assess your neurological(sensory) and vascular(blood circulation) status.
