Foot Care and Diabetes

 Foot problems are common, especially in individuals affected with multiple health conditions or complications. Diabetes and arthritis pose a special risk to the function and comfort of the feet. This is why it is important to have a consistent care routine for your feet and monitor for any potential issues. A personal foot care nurse is specially trained to provide foot care assessment and treatment to you or your loved one to ensure long-term health and wellbeing.

Feet problems are common, but they are especially frequent in individuals affected by diabetes. If left untreated, these issues may progress and lead to more severe complications involving nerve damage and reduced blood flow. Wounds in individuals with diabetes tend to heal slower and progress more quickly. A small cut on a foot, if left unattended, can quickly develop into a foot ulcer. This is why it is crucial to do regular self-checks and have a qualified foot care nurse perform periodic foot assessments and address any issues such as injuries, cuts, blisters or ingrown toenails.
