    Diabetes Foot Care

    Protect Yourself From Diabetes Induced Foot Problems with a Diabetic Foot Care Consultation
    Diabetes is a serious disease that can develop from lack of insulin production in the body, or from the inability of the body’s insulin to perform its normal everyday functions.

    Many complications can be associated with diabetes. Diabetes disrupts the vascular system, affecting many areas of the body such as the eyes, kidneys, legs, and the feet. People with diabetes should pay special attention to their feet as diabetes affects the feet significantly.

    People with diabetes can develop neuropathic and vascular ulcers in the feet if the feet are neglected. The worst case scenario leads to amputations of the feet and toes and long term hospitalisation. These ulcers are preventable with proper regular foot checks and the correct treatment.
