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:
Walking gait and biomechanics
Skin and nail conditions
Wound assessment and management
Activity levels in helping to manage blood glucose levels
