Diabetes Foot Care 

Diabetes is the epidemic of the 21st century and the biggest challenge confronting Australia’s health system. Diabetes affects up to 1.7 million people in Australia – and every year there are more than 27,600 hospital admissions for diabetes related foot ulcers. It is our role as Podiatrists to assess the neurological and vascular health of your feet, assess your nail and skin condition and provide education about daily foot checks and footwear. When blood sugars are high or uncontrolled, the risk of damage to nerve endings are heightened and circulation to the feet can be reduced. It is also recommended to see a podiatrist regularly if you have diabetes and suffer from blisters, ingrown toenails, callus, corns and broken skin between the toes. Once the annual assessment is completed, we will communicate with your general practitioner or specialist/s and inform them of the results.
