Diabetic Foot Assessment
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes it is vital to keep on top of your foot health.
Your nail should be cut and filed on a regular basis and your feet should be checked daily for signs of reduced sensation. Prompt treatment intervention is recommended for burns, cuts or breaks in skin or any unusual change in colour or temperature.
Many diabetic patients are not confident in attending to their own nail care for fear of causing injury and therefore opt for regular nail care from their Podiatrist.
I can provide you with routine podiatry treatment on a regular basis and also offer an annual Diabetic foot assessment to check your vascular and neurological status and issue appropriate advice and recommendations.
Diabetic assessment includes:
- Neurological assessment
- Vascular assessment
- Skin and nail care
- Detailed diabetic footcare advice
- Copy of diabetic assessment and risk rating
