Podiatry treatment for diabetes

Diabetes Diabetes can impact your feet but it doesn’t have to. Here at Feet Forward Podiatry we strongly recommend regular diabetic foot care to avoid any possible secondary complications, but most importantly to maintain a healthy mobile lifestyle.

Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics should regularly see their podiatrist for footcare and diabetic education. Prevention is key.

Assessment of a diabetic includes

  • Nerve testing.
  • Checking the pulses.
  • Maintaining healthy skin integrity.
  • Discussing appropriate footwear.
  • Treating high pressure areas.
