Diabetic Management 

At Foot Foundation, we recognise the critical importance of managing foot health, especially for individuals living with diabetes. Diabetes can lead to complications affecting the feet, requiring specialised care to prevent ulcers, infections, and other serious conditions.

Understanding Diabetic Foot Complications

Diabetes can cause nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor blood circulation (peripheral vascular disease) in the feet, leading to reduced sensation and slower healing. This increases the risk of developing foot ulcers, infections, and other foot-related problems.

Specialised Diabetic Foot Care

At Foot Foundation, we offer specialized diabetic foot care services, including:

  1. Regular Foot Examinations: Comprehensive foot assessments to detect any issues such as wounds, calluses, or changes in sensation at an early stage.

  2. Customized Footwear: Providing advice on appropriate footwear to reduce pressure points and prevent injuries or complications.

  3. Foot Ulcer Management: Specialized care and treatments for diabetic foot ulcers to promote healing and prevent infections.

  4. Peripheral Neuropathy Management: Strategies to manage nerve damage and alleviate symptoms associated with neuropathy.

  5. Vascular Assessment: Evaluation of blood circulation in the feet to identify and manage any vascular complications.

Preventative Measures

We emphasize the importance of preventative measures for individuals with diabetes to maintain healthy feet:

  • Daily foot inspections

  • Proper hygiene and moisturization

  • Regular visits to a podiatrist

  • Management of blood sugar levels
