Are you a diabetic?
March 5th, 2013
Are you a diabetic? Your feet will need particular attention:
- Always wear well-fitting footwear.
- Never walk barefoot.
- As a diabetic, your sense of feeling of pain or heat and cold may be reduced. This means that you may not be aware of any problems. Examine your feet every day and look for cuts, cracks, colour changes or discharge (pus).
- Consult a podiatrist /chiropodist at least every twelve months for an assessment of your foot health.
Call our podiatrist/chiropodist, Hilary Rimmer at The Olney Treatment Rooms on 01234 240444.
