It is recommended that people with diabetes or that are pre-diabetic/borderline diabetes, have annual diabetes foot checks.
This involves neurological assessment to determine nerve function in your feet, vascular assessment with ultrasound to determine blood flow to your feet as well as overall foot health and footwear suitability. This enables us to determine your risk factors for complications of diabetes including lack of protective sensation, delayed healing, pre-ulceration, ulcers/wounds and amputation.
We can work closely with your GP or nurse to enhance your wound care and hopefully speed up the process. We are qualified in wound debridement. We can also give you advice on recommended daily foot care and suitable footwear.
