Care and Diabetes
Foot care is VERY important
for people with diabetes. The feet are often the first part
of the body to be affected by diabetes. Diabetes can damage
blood vessels, causing poor blood flow to the feet. This can
cause slower healing and increase the risk of infection.
Unfortunately diabetes can also damage nerves, causing loss
of feeling. As a result a person with diabetes may hurt
their feet and not know it!
The Centenary Foot Clinic
professionals understand the importance of proper foot care
when dealing with diabetes, that's why we created a list of
steps every diabetic should know in order to help keep their
feet healthy. Click HERE for an online copy.
