Diabetic Footcare

Why is this important?

Diabetes Mellitus can have a serious impact upon an individual’s feet and if not appropriately managed can result in leg, foot or toe amputations in England. Quality of life is reported to be greatly impacted in these individuals (Diabetes UK, 2012).

Diabetes UK are constantly campaigning to raise further awareness of the impact that having Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can have on foot health.

‘’Putting Feet First ‘’ aims to increase public awareness and education with an aim to facilitate annual foot health checks. (www.diabetes.org.uk)

What should I do if I am diabetic?

The main role of the foot health practitioner is to provide education and advice towards maintaining a healthy foot. Regular foot health appointments allow complications to be identified at an early stage. Sheridan Foot Health will undertake vascular and neurological checks.
