Podiatry & Diabetes

Diabetes is a highly prevalent condition in Australia. Many people, however, are not aware of the effects it can have on the feet.

High blood glucose levels can affect many systems within the body, which is why it is so important to have ongoing preventative Podiatry care.

Regular assessments are required for optimum foot care, in which the following will be assessed:

  • Blood supply

  • Nerve function

  • Walking gait and biomechanics

  • Footwear assessment

  • Skin and nail conditions

  • Wound assessment and management

  • Activity levels in helping to manage blood glucose levels
